Lack of ethics at top of business
RECENTLY some citizens have been outraged that public institutions like the BBC have always operated a completely unjust payment system for female staff.
The explanation is that immoral men have been specially selected as directors retaining that injustice, with no ambition to establish honourable standards. And within private enterprise, Conservative voters are totally opposed to the idea of compelling firms to adopt honourable standards of equal pay.
If these are the kind of people chosen as directors, just as bank directors were exposed as criminals deserving multi-million-pound fines in 2008, you would scarcely expect them to treat female underlings with respect.
If male British directors have been deliberately cheating female employees financially for a hundred years, and half the UK population does not object to that, it would be astonishing if those same men kept their hands to themselves. You must see that these two attitudes of their superiority, about pay and sex, are connected, in executive heads.
Morality is indivisible. Directors who cheat female employees of their salary will cheat customers, employees and you.
These creeps are only perpetuating British upper class culture: the boss can do as he likes, because he is the boss. With these standards, are you surprised that British productivity is low?
Sexual harassment and sexual blackmail are an indication that British commerce has always needed an ethical foundation to be enforced, but only those without ethics were promoted.
