God, it's the year of the underpaid employee
Spittin' forty plus a week
And tryin' to rape Earth on my off time

from Aesop Rock – 9-5'ers Anthem Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Aes drops the metaphorical language and goes in: this whole time, he’s been talking about exploited workers.

Not only is Aesop referring to the exploitation of workers, but also the repletion of earth’s resources by means of consumerism.
