Voluntary labor isn't exploitation, regardless of who benefits, or by how much.

My company pays me because they deem my contribution to be of greater worth than the cost to employ me. Are they exploiting me since they see a greater benefit than they pay?

Likewise, I have determined my time is worth less than the amount they compensate me.

How can voluntary mutual benefit be deemed exploitation? It's either an abuse of the definition of exploitation, or ignorance.
