"Anyone who doesn't realize that much of what passes in our time for
employment is, to a greater or lesser extent, exploitation has his head
in some kind of hole."

It's simple, people who persists in working in an area with too much
supply get market wages -- nothing more, nothing less.   Be they actors
or educators, this is not exploitation, but the market fairly reacting
to the over supply of labor.  Believing otherwise is having ones head in
"some kind of hole".
