Its all about employment. "Jobs" are a tool to keep us too busy to be politically active. Automation means a lot of work is obsolete, but capitalism requires us to work anyway.

The ruling class would like too cull the working class. In antiquity they would have a war, but that has become too messy.

The elites think you are a useless eater and want you dead. You may think your work justifies your existence, but it only serves to keep other useless eaters around so you are expendable.

You are required to work to sustain yourself under any system unless you want to be literal livestock. Capitalism has simply made that work vastly easier and more productive.

That would be fine if we all had enough land to live off of and the government left us alone. However, an industrial society needs an industrial approach to labor. And that means strong unions that can negotiate decent pensions and minimum vacation times and wages that can support a family. These are not functions of capitalism.
