Re: if those at the low end are really being exploited

Those at the low end are presumably those with generic, widely available skills, who cannot "just get a better job/ upskill" so easily (because of personal or financial constraints), they are essentially forced to take whatever offer they get; therefore they are easy to exploit; therefore they *are* often exploited by the ruthless. This differs from those people with skills where demand exceeds supply, who can defect to a better offer.
