In Jamaica (after the abolition of slavery) even at very low wages
workers could live for a week (no heating or clothing expense) on just a
few hours work. They introduced a head tax to make wage labor necessary.


Supporting the thesis that necessity was not a driving force in the  
biological development of humanity, nor was it the driving force for  
technological gains and labor-time saving inventions.
