I would go further and say that as it has turned out historically,
capitalism has always had a combination of free-labor and oppressed
labor,with new oppressed forms arising with the abolition of slavery. The
capitalist always try to cheat on the wage-labor as described in _Capital_.
Wage-labor is the "ideal" that Marx describes. In fact, the capitalist
always try to push free-labor into somekind of further bondage,
In other words, capitalism has always been, from the primitive accumulation
of capital,  and will always be combined and uneven _accumulation_ . This is
a corrollary law of the Absolute General Law of Capitalist Accumulation.
