The same was said for slave labor.
Funny thing is when a company or mega corp actually does look out for its employees they get more in return then just profits.
More pay and better benefits show that the employees work harder, produce more, and the quality of the work improves. They also have more money to spend so that money goes right back to the company producing more profits.
imagine if the companies treated us well and we returned the favor. In stead you would rather us to beg the rich for our small crust of bread, and hope that if we treat them well they will return the favor.
