@CobaltVelvet afaik for marx a worker is someone who holds labour power, so roughly speaking, workers are people who could shut down the economy by striking. which leads to bad takes like "sex workers aren't workers" (marx refered to them as the lumpenproletariat, basically proles with no revolutionary potential, because for marx revolutionary potential essentially comes from industrial labour). tl;dr the position you're criticizing is, to my understanding, dogmatic marxism
