good for who? Not for both sides, no. Thats about the nature of capitalsim, not about whether you, I, or Jo(e) Bloggs is a good egg or not.

That is not to say all bosses are mean nasty people, I have got on perfectly well with a couple of mine (well, I've got on with all of them, pretty much, but by that I mean I'd still get on with them outside of work) but within the workplace their role is to maximise the exploitation of my labour. To steal the surplus value I create for themselves. & if/when it all goes arse over tit .... who comes out worse? there arent too many cases where the boss does an Maxwell off the side of a boat, far more often they move off with a still very healthy lifestyle thank you, whilst 'their' workers are on the dole.

It's not exactly a relationship of equals.

I could just have said I'm an old fashioned marxist of course.
