Benvolio it is clear you are neither an economist nor even a capitalist. "Too many poor people" is another way of saying "under utilised mismanaged human resource opportunity." If you can't see how to profitably invest in that resource, for mutual benefit, then you'd not make it as a manager either. This is an opportunity that can be spotted after even an introductory Economics 101 course.
In fact the arguments you present were generally only heard from 1970's trade unionists, whose moment in the sun fighting for adequate working conditions had long passed, and when they had nothing left to do but cling to relevance by spewing populist protectionist economic claptrap.
If you do decide to do some remedial studies of economics, I suggest you begin with the "Lump of Labour Fallacy."
