Corporate Wrongdoing: political hypocrisy 101

Some corporations:

-steal from those whose interests they claim to protect

-steal from federal grants, giving it to the founder’s brother

-file shell companies and corporations in order to avoid US laws, regulations and oversight

-pursue profits at the expense of human dignity and self worth

-defraud and bilk fellow corporations out of millions of dollars

-claim to help but really line the pockets of those in power

-fail to pay minimum wage laws

-lie about the amounts stolen

-cover up financial wrongdoing

-cover up for criminals

-engage in a nationwide criminal enterprise

-involve itself in human trafficking for profits

-overwork their employees, often not paying minimum wage

-skirt taxes and are in default on unemployment taxes

-commit voter fraud on a nationwide basis

there’s more that I’m forgetting…

oh, you probably thought I was talking about Enron.  You know, the evil company led by evil people who needed more regulation, oversight and investigations, right?

nope.
