Current tax code works against workers

Since we are a free country, why shouldn't any business, large or small, offer employees a wage and nothing else? Since the employer who offers a wage only would be in competition with employers who offer salary and benefits, it is immediately evident that the wage-only employer would need to pay higher wagers in order to attract qualified employees. Employees of this company could purchase their own 401K plans, purchase their own health care, and spend their money as they saw fit. They may even choose not to spend any money on abortions. Sort of fits in with the free country principle, doesn't it?
