No from what I have seen the American "capitalist" model is hire as few people as you can pay them as little as you can get away with. There will always be people to replace those that get fed up and leave.Hire the best and pay them commensurately. Sounds like a capitalist socio-economic model.
Don't think people in this country want to see a European-model tax structure to pay for socialist programs.
If socialism discorages ambition as many claim capitalism discorages taking care of your workers. Or anything else that could possibly reduce the bottom line.
And yes many people would prefer the paying higher taxes if it meant paying less out of pocket for other things
