I think something that is missing from this conversation of what employers are responsible for vs what employees are responsible for, is that fact
that employees have little leverage overall. In order for the value of labor and management to be accurately set both sides must have equal leverage.
Since very few of the lower/middle class are self sufficient and very many in debt, leverage is highly weighted to the management side. We need the
job much more than management needs us. To balance income we need to balance leverage.
Also, we may need to start asking ourselves about the value of a system that allows a pizza company to be worth 1 billion dollars, a burger store to
be worth ~100 billion, and 3 of the worlds 25 richest people to be... candy makers
