    It's not cute when a cute penguin in power tells you that your bones are too long.

    Does simply owning a place give someone the right to profit off of the labours of those who work at that place?

    It's their business venture. Do you have a right to an equal share as a partner just because you work at the place?

    The employee's choice to work there gives them the right to profit off the employee's labor.

    Don't want them to profit off your labor? Work someplace else or start your own business.

    Greater Pay: Reality is everyone is subservient to something, all the way up the chain. Employers are subservient to whatever type of demand allows their organization to remain operational - whether that be an economic market, the need for a public service, etc. The greatest amount of pay is typically allocated to those who are closest to the responsibility of ensuring that the organization remains operational, since without that, there's no influx of money to pay everyone else. That may not always be "fair", depending on the quality of labor of the individual in question, but that's why employers are typically paid more, anyway.

    Firing Good Employees: First thing that comes to my mind is who's deciding that they're "good". Sometimes the best employees in some ways can be terrible in other ways. For example - someone on a team who is experienced, skilled, and takes initiative - but is unpredictably negative and regularly exhibits behavior that makes the rest of their team uncomfortable at the workplace. They might be a great employee in isolation but regardless of how good they are individually they're not worth losing the productivity and positivity of the rest of the team. And of course sometimes someone gets fired for a reason that's really just not sensible, but that's life. The people in charge aren't perfect and they make mistakes at their jobs too.

    There are very few places that give their employees fair pay, so just working someplace else is not an answer for most people.

    Starting your own business requires a starting capital and business management skills, both of which costs money to acquire and thus means that you're stuck working for an employer that takes part of the profit of your labour regardless until the time you can buy yourself free.
