If B&J didn't care about the workers pay then I don't know why they'd be negotiating anything to start with. But I also don't know what they think
they can do either.
They are both separate businesses. The Milk Producers and the Milk Buyers. Even if B&J wanted better wages for the workers making the milk they have
no power over to change what they get paid. That is up to the business the workers work for. All B&J could do is threaten to stop buying from
I imagine something like:
B&J - "Hey, you should be paying your workers more money"
Farms - "Hey, mind your own business. We don't tell you how to make Ice Cream, so don't tell us how to produce Milk."
B&J - "What if we buy our milk somewhere else?"
Farms - "Go ahead. We have other customers, plus subsidies by the Gov. and we are the cheapest for milk. We'll be just fine. But say goodbye to
your own profits buying from others more expensive. You're Ice Cream is already too expensive and you can't raise the price more or people won't buy
it. Good luck."
