    They are in business for a profit but I doubt many try to screw over their customers.  They rely on return customers.

    Yes of course. Corporations like P G and E screw customers over by not spending money trimming trees that damage power lines. They use the money to pay executives instead. When a tree falls on a power line and cause a wild fire, they want customers to pay for the damage by raising rates.

      Dont blame pg&e for your ridiculous leaders. California has enacted several laws that heavily restrict such vital fire-preventing measures as logging, removal of dead trees, and clearing of dry underbrush

    Yes, the purpose of any company is to make a profit, and to make that profit they must exploit every bit of an employee, for the benefit of all.

    Unless you are a public employee union member than the purpose of any department is to create high paying jobs that buy democrat votes and fund unions to increase Democrat union political contributions.

    Those that eventually fail do, and then you have Microsoft in 1986 initial public offering (IPO), and subsequent rise in its share price, created three billionaires and an estimated 12,000 millionaires among Microsoft employees.

  • This has been a long term republican trend, allowing corporations to screw over their wage earning employees that started with Reagan.

    Even when it doesn't.  Caterpillar was caught outsourcing jobs at a loss.
