One of the greatest enslavers around is the matter of being underpaid. Most of the super rich get their wealth from banking and related financial services. If you don't earn enough to live comfortably on, the end result is usually going into debt when some emergency comes up. That only compounds the already existing problem by saddling on the extra burden of exhorbitant interest and increasing debt is the only way to survive.
Often, the only way out is to declare bankruptcy which also costs money but far less than continuing on with the crushing debt.
It's an evil system and the true "lazy" of the world are determined to keep the gravy train for themslves rolling right along. Everyone else is just an expendable pawn in this ruthless game.
