Barry: 'Skip it each time'? Are you deaf? Each tedious debate we have, I say: 'Your' labor is always predicated upon the labor of OTHERS. We can never separate 'your' labor from the labor of 'youR' employees except by monopolizing the means of production and forcing most people to accept 'your' terms of separation---under penalty of hunger and homelessness. If THAT is 'a quandary of jargon juxtaposition,' then I suspect you are simply clinging to an ideology that 'conveniently' justifies your appropriation of other people's work.

You skipped it again. You have no answer so you deflect like a common politician. My labor (all $120,000 worth of it - which by the way according to your theory is only a small portion of what I actually produced for my bosses) was invested into my business. Should I lose that? Deal with my labor as expressed by the capital required for the startup of this business and say why that should be someone else's (my employees). Then tell me what I am due for 4 years of non-compensated research and development.
