The separation of capital, rent, and labour is thus fatal for the worker.

This will reduce the supply of labor.

In ancient economies where slave labour was the predominant form of labour, and for a long time after, when the material conditions of the labourer were not much better, the earnings of labour were viewed as not very different from the feed of horses. If, then, the money wages of labour should fall, whilst every commodity on which the wages of labour were expended rose, the labourer would be doubly affected, and would be soon totally deprived of subsistence. Instead, therefore, of the money wages of labour falling, they would rise; but they would not rise sufficiently to enable the labourer. According to Lassalle, wages cannot fall below subsistence wage level because without subsistence, laborers will be unable to work.
