The modern-day job market is a modern-day slave market.

When people need to be at a particular place and time and do what is required of them by other people in order to obtain money to stay alive, that is slavery. The 99% of the population are enslaved to the 1% wealthiest part of the population. People, like giraffes, are born to be free. This type of enslavement causes social ills, individual unhappiness and insanity.

I think that definition of slavery is too broad. It basically includes anyone that has responsibilities to another person.

It's not slavery unless the person literally owns the "slave". It's actually really insulting to compare today's job market to slavery. Showing up at a certain place at a certain time to do a job for money is employment. You don't do anything you didn't agree to. Your boss isn't well within his rights to rape/beat/starve/murder you at their discretion. Being owned isn't employment, you can't terminate the contract whenever you want.

Yeah, we might have it rough, but comparing it to slavery is a joke. We may as well start passing out purple hearts to soldiers who stubbed their toe overseas.

What Mike said. I define slavery as ownership of another person. Having to do something you don't want to do just isn't a good definition of slavery. There's going to be times in life where you need to do things you don't want to do to survive no matter how healthy society is.
