1a. Wage slavery is basically a way of corrupting the minds of the lower class. The lower class needs the money so; they will do anything to get it because they have to survive. For example, when Ona got raped, Phil threatened to take their jobs away from them if she told; knowing that wouldn’t be an option for her. The upper class has control over them because they have something the lower class absolutely needs. “Then he threatened me. He knew all about us, he knew we would starve.
