Blood money is fine with us, says GitLab: Vetting non-evil customers is 'time consuming, potentially distracting'

Re: I have said this before....

I understand your point of view. I've been there myself: ethics aren't free, and if you don't own the company, you don't set the priorities.

In my very brief time doing commission sales, I learned that, at that company, successful salespeople extracted maximum money from customers. If a customer agreed to pay more than the going price for an item, we were to charge them that higher price: think of some excuse to grab the manager, and he would override the price at the register. The very best salespeople got promoted to other stores faster than the consequences could catch them.

I'm fortunate to work for a company whose ethics are compatible with mine. Of course, that is an important part of my "total compensation." Your ethics aren't free, and neither are mine.
