> Agree to it or not, but if you agree to it, it clearly wasn't that abusive.
I'm glad if you've always had the resources to let you walk away from abusive employers. But that's a fairly rare privilege. Plenty of people make the rational decision that agreeing to an abusive situation is better than starving. But usually it's possible for the company to make money, the employees not to starve, *and* for them not to be abused.
