Re: Simple to compensate the vast majority of victims

Well, to be honest, why do we care if the entity that's broken the law in a massive & sustainably profitable way hisses?

If you can "just do it & pay off the fines" then how is it a deterrent? That's how you end up with $billion+ companies, like Uber, who have zero scruples and no actual business plan beyond exploit the workers until they can be replaced by robots.

They should be plucked.
