It depends on the business, not everyone works for "wages" at least not hourly ones.<quoted text>
Talking out someone else's ass doesn't help your credibility. High wages are a product of success, not a prescription for it. If your lifestyle demands a higher wage, get another job or adjust your lifestyle.
Some very capable workers get stuck in sht jobs because they value security over success. And some real turds find success for no other reason than being available at the right time.
