    once bargaining parity is established, there's no reason there would be a shortage of people willing to do it for the likely very high wages and benefits they'd get.  Pay people enough, and a job does become consensual no matter how awful.  If prostitutes were paid $50,000 per blowjob, people would be abandoning law careers and office manager positions to become hos.  

    Business doesn't distinguish between making money and taking money.
