I think it's also important to point out that corporations are **not moral agents**. The only thing they "want" to do is increase profits. And if they can get away with doing direct harm to people to increase profits, they 100% will (are are) doing it.
@rctatman Are you talking about trade union organizations? But I would not make all sorts of generalizations. Corporations also have internal documents regulating moral values and social responsibility.
@linuxoid they are in no way bound by internal documents & historically have chosen not to abide by them whenever it would be more profitable not to (e.g. through 3rd party contracts). As far as I can tell, docs like those tend to exist to make workers ~feel~ like they're legit.
Although being on the lookout for behaviours you described (e.g. placating the workers with pledging to do the right thing and than acting against it) is always a good idea.
@rctatman I do not believe paper bureaucrats behind beautiful signs, but I believe my friends, with whom, as we say, "I ate a pound of salt."
