Excerpt from The Hireling and the Slave

If Slavery is subject to abuses, it has its compensations also. It establishes more permanent, and, therefore, kinder relations between capital and labour. Removes what Stuart Mill calls the widening and embittering feud be tween the class of labour and the class of capital. It draws the relation closer between master and servant. It is not an engagement for days or weeks, but for life. There is no such thing, with slavery, as a labourer for whom nobody cares or provides. The most wretched feature, in hireling labour, is the isolated miserable creature who has no home, no work, no food, and in whom no one is particularly inter osted. This is seen among hirelings only.
