Don't forget: 150 years ago, people took it for granted that all businesses should be worker-controlled.

A major plank of the Republican Party platform was for free wages vs. wage labor (wage slavery), considering it a form of slavery only marginally better than the south's version.

My, how times change.

From the site: Mike Leung's Abolish Human Rentals website is "dedicated to bringing an old idea into the public conscience, that the standard employment relationship, a contract for the rental of people, is invalid due to the inalienable rights of humans. It is based on the already widely held principle of the non-transferability of responsibility for one’s actions. That principle, taken to its logical conclusion, means the rental of humans have no more legitimacy than their sale." The work follows in the theoretical footsteps of David Ellerman, who among other pursuits was the co-author of Chapter 157A of the Massachusetts General Laws: Employee Cooperative Corporations
