The OP is pointing out that nobody sells Goodburger anymore. The few companies that Evilburger didnt buyout, or open from behind, were forced to copy
Evilburger business practices to stay afloat.
Are they evil because they make money? Is that the problem. I am sure if you go to a McDonald's and get crappy service, your complaints will be heard
and dealt with. I am sure they would also address any food quality concerns you have as well.
The whining is about money, not quality of goods or service.
'Big Business' is evil because it only seeks to make profit. That's BS. We sit here and judge the individuals that own companies (shareholders) but
live our lives with the same motivation.
Would you go to work if they stopped paying you?
Here is a great example of how innovation and creative business practices can make someone wealthy, pay employees very well, and keep prices low.
Aldi has, for a grocery store, a very competitive starting wage. Not only that, they give raises often. Starting wage at my local Aldi is $11.65!!
There is room for promotion as well.
Aldi is also crazy cheap. They cut costs by palletizing all merchandise, and providing no frills.
The founder of Aldi is Karl Hans Albrecht, the 6th riches man in the world. Karl Hans Albrecht was the son of a miner, and started in his Mom's
little corner store.
Recently, they have been able to expand due to the recession. They have even stepped on Walmartss toes from time to time.
