Yeah, I totally agree with those who are saying having a job doesn't make a person a slave.
1) I love having a fulfilling, challenging job as an employee in a really cool industry, and I've also had mindless jobs such as hotel clerk that one doesn't take home at night, and those can be great, too, depending on what you want.
2) I always think it's interesting that people tend to think that everyone should want the same things.
3) A lot of people, particular in rich countries, have really lost sight of the fact that there are real slaves all over the world, who may have been kidnapped or tricked or sold by their families or someone else. We think it's awesome to call people who have choices and dignity ``slaves'', and I think it says a lot about a person's personality when they make the choice to abuse language and diminish real suffering like that.
