It's not nature of the job, but the economic and political status of the overall situation that's important.  The small farmer or shopkeeper is infinitely more than a paid employee - they are owners of functional capital, and as such have an ownership stake in society as a whole, and thus greater political clout.  And, as Linca mentions, there is a level of integration into the entire society that is different from that endured by the wage slave.
