# Labor paid by value rather than job time. Standard capitalist practice is like softened chattel slavery where the master/capital or its proxy rents rather than owns the worker. Much obfuscation is spewed to cover this core relation of master and slave but it inevitably makes itself felt sooner rather than later especially when workers take supposed freedoms, particularly ones suited to and hard won from an early stage of capital-labor relations, seriously and then encounter the reality of their status as (non-self) employees.<br><br>

# Production for exchange as actual real reason for it. Standard capitalist firms ubiquitously proclaim that they are producing for society and are generally silent about their actual motive which is extraction of profit. Worker production may have the production of surplus value realized in exchange as an economic criterion of being actually productive but it is the use value of the thing produced that is the purpose of the activity and surplus via exchange is not in general a requirement for undertaking production.  <br><br>

# Distribution of produced value. Standard capitalist practice controls production only to the extent necessary to extract the produced surplus exchange value. In Worker Capitalism, this surplus, if it exists, is distributed among the producers according to self determined rules.

# Dependency. In classical capital/labor relations, the employer encourages various kinds of worker dependency consistent with the notion of having purchased and for biz purposes owning a lump of labor. In contrast, in Worker Capitalism, each individual worker is expected to function as an independent capital that can fully and responsibly act in its own interest, pay its own way in society from the value of its labor which is undivided except for any taxes paid to society at large for the services the latter provides.
