If that is the case, we being 'employees' to our employers - can that be

I know what you're saying, and agree with it. However, I can't resist pointing out that early twentieth century radicals in North America used the term "wage slavery" to refer our economic system. The point was, of course, that, even though people are nominally free, they are often tied to jobs by necessity.
