No it isn't. Currency is a medium of exchange and its value is determined by what we believe it to be. Wealth is a form of possession.
The bourgeoisie do not "steal" labor. They provide an agreed-upon amount of compensation for that labor. The answer isn't to revolt. It's to renegotiate. This is why socialism fails as well - it's always trying to bargain from a position of weakness. And instead of strengthening that position, they just turn violent.
If you don't believe your labor is worth as much as someone else does, find another to exchange that labor for, or improve your own labor to encourage more compensation for it.
Well steal is subjective but as labor is a necessity to survive, it is. The proletariat has no choice but to play into the system unless they are prepared to break the system. Hence the importance of class distinction and the need of welfare to maintain their ignorance for the bourgeois.
But that's besides the point and actually a strawman. The point was it is their labor that creates the taxation that someone else pays for them because they profit from their surplus labor. So the proletariat doesn't take more than they put into the system.
