So first you say nothing stops them. Then you blame startup cost and the locals for them not doing it? Oh and you blame laziness of the people involved.

Maybe I'm stupid, but it seems to me this "Perks" system just replaces the pay check I get with "perks." Whatever that is. Who decides these perks and to whom they are distributed and in what manner?
I get it that you're trying to make the system more "moral" but I don't think this is the way.
Under your Perk system, wouldn't those in the positions currently occupied by business owners, CEOs, entrepreneurs, etc still be compensated (and since their jobs make many others possible, compensated with significantly more perks)?
Sounds like capitalism to me.

So if you choose to bust your ass 80 hours a week 7 days out of the week with maximum efficiency at a job that allows for it, then you can rapidly build up long periods of vacation time, even potentially early retirement if you work for it.

...There will be people at all levels who will game the system. The more complicated you make it, the easier it will be to game and get advantage out of.

Capitalism is fine at ita core, we just need beter regulation and rules. Also, less consumption of less needed things. We cant let our petty demands drive our species 6 feet asunder.
