I work in publishing, but only for the last two years. Before then marketing and seven years with the same company before redundancy. You are right
and although some might say it was just the 'good times' I believe benefits a decent salary, bonuses etc. create better workers. Yes, you will always
get those out to cheat the system, but invariably they are removed and those capable and willing were properly renumerated; as it should be.
The publishing industry has always offered low wages as people put the job before the salary, but with the digital evolution a whole new skill set is

like puppies crying for milk, weak.
We used to farm, build, invent, explore, THINK - now we sit in call centres and spend our lives being dictated to by managers who get to that position
precisely because they have mastered the art of managing upwards and looking after number one...
Every despotic society has disposed of the people who see the prison bars as they wrap around them, the teachers, the educated, writers, they all go
first - Hitler, Mao, Stalin, anyone who questions the ' new norm' , anyone who thinks .. questions..
Our devolution is assured unless we display some of the resiliance of our ancestors and some gumption, I dont have an answer.
I do know that the job system is just a symptom of something even more sinister... that is being inflicted on us, however morally responsible we
