Firstly, the vast majority of working musicians are NOT 'really wealthy'
Secondly, and this continues to dismay me, people like you propose musicians retreat from the financial benefits that have been hard won over many years of struggle.
So what if musicians were 'slaves' a hundred or more years ago?
That was then, this is now.
Years ago women didn't have a vote and black American musicians couldn't play with white musicians.
Society develops (for the better hopefully).
And as such, we've by and large accepted worldwide that musicians are deserving of financial compensation for their work.
