Labour is a big Idea (in this case an economic one)
In case you were thinking that the capitalists had it all there own way there was of course resistance.
David Ricardo (1772 to 1823) who was effectively dis-inherited by his Jewish family when he married outside his faith developed the Labour Theory of Value which was used later by Karl Marx in creating the concept of ' Surplus Labour'. (Don't worry David did well as a businessman amassing quite a fortune and became an MP).
Historically workers started to get together in Guilds and Trade unions to try to make sure that they
were able to avoid being undercut by other workers willing to work for less pay.
These collective organisations were able to negotiate with employers in the hope that they could arrive at just and fair agreements.
