They'd rather do whatever it takes to keep more money in their pockets than actually help provide for the people who make their businesses go round.
Not just that, but they do things against their own business interests just to prove a point. Look at Papa Johns. Look at that Denny's franchise. Not only did they announce they were doing something that is already common business practice in **** jobs like Papa Johns, but they managed to alienate themselves, their employees AND their customers in one fell swoop.
