Slaves vs. Employees: Cost/Benefit Study

 
From What is Debt - An Interview with Economic Anthropologist David Graeber:

And, I might add, if Aristotle were around today, I very much doubt he would think that the distinction between renting yourself or members of your family out to work and selling yourself or members of your family to work was more than a legal nicety. He’d probably conclude that most Americans were, for all intents and purposes, slaves.

A slave does not get Employee of the Month. That is one difference.
