English term or phrase: residual returns
The very logic that originally gave rise to free-market, competitive capitalism now supports free-market,
competitive laborism – a system in which those who work for a firm reap most of the residual returns and have the greatest
decision-making authority within it.

Explanation:

The term 'residual return' is used with regard to market trading, but I am not certain that this specific meaning is what your context is referring to.

Residual Return Definition:

Return independent of the benchmark. The Residual Return is the return relative to Beta times the Benchmark return. To be exact, an asset`s residual return equals its excess return Minus beta times the benchmark excess return.

It can also be taken to mean, simply, that the employees gain the majority of the market share, or profits, of a company through performance benchmarks, awarded within a bonus structure, being a integral part of the compensation plan offered to employees.

agree  Ken Cox: Judging from the tone of the text, the author probably means that employees now skim off the cream of a company's earnings, leaving little for the shareholders. The normal meaning doesn't seem that relevant, and the author was probably trying to show off.

  -> Thank you, Ken ~ you could be absolutely right.

agree  dd dd: "surplus value" by Karl Marx: Surplus value is a concept created by Karl Marx in his critique of political economy, where its ultimate source is unpaid surplus labor performed by the worker for the capitalist, serving as a basis for capital accumulation.

  -> Thank you, Laura ~ I'm uncertain as to whether that concept applies here; it's good to know!
