Profit != benefit. All work and produce thereof is, we can imagine, in

Certainly we must at least reclaim the *costs* of that production, and
Wages are one of those *costs*.
But, again, variation in how we define terms is probably keeping us
from understanding one another.

and 'Cost', or do you see them as the same thing?
