"Aristopressor"

On the brow sweat determines a wage,
with toil, submission, and rage;
And on the fat necks of the
mighty a gold piece is seen,
the decor of the oppressively
mean.

I like the 'fat necks' image, especially after seeing the worker sweat. I'm curious about the word 'determines' though. Is it really what you want to say? Does the amount of sweat really lead to the wage or does it bring something home, albeit insufficient? Great title too!
