Most businesses wouldn't have any major issue spending that little extra money; if they did, they wouldn't if they were slightly more efficient or if the CxO's got a few million dollars less.
Eg. Coca-Cola has 130k employees. Increasing their employee base by 50% (I assume an average cost of $100k/employee) would cost $6.5B/y or barely 15% of their yearly revenue.
You can make the same calculations for a number of companies, unless the company is severely mismanaged or inefficient (in which case it should fail anyway) you'll find that it is VERY affordable if only their CxO's would give up a few million of bonus or the shareholders wouldn't mind to throw in a penny.
