...Engels assumed that the economic system then governing was capitalism. They acknowledged that the very foundation of the capitalists' business is the labor sector. Without the latter, the capitalists cannot produce profit since capital per se will not gain anything without the active participation of labor. Due to this need for labor, the capitalists then have to succumb to the demands of the working class, if only to survive. Thus, the determination of the salary of the working class rests on the way the laborers and their organizations defend their position during their negotiations with the capitalists. Considering that presently, Europe has... It can be gleaned from the passage that Marx and...
