"There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible." - Henry Ford.
Ford knew the best defense against socialism and government interference in the free market is good-paying jobs. Supporting a growing middle class and an expanding the economy makes the capitalist richer in the long run.
Industrial serfdom can only lead to the decline of capitalism.
We could use a few more long-sighted capitalists and fewer short-sighted plutocrats if we want to keep a (relatively) free market economy.
