if you employ me and use my labour for a week, and for that week you refuse to pay me more than the price of one loaf of bread, I run out of muscle energy because the energy in the loaf isn’t enough to replace the energy you’ve gained by employing me.

The token in money I get from you, isn’t enough to buy me enough energy-subsistence for my working week.

This is how work and wages function in balance
