Filing for Moral Bankruptcy

Morally Bankrupt
Terrified children in cages. Black-clad ICE agents coldly patrolling the perimeter of the yard like medieval footmen guarding a castle. Parents weeping in fear for the safety of their flesh and blood, a sweat-drenched lot that awaits word of their ultimate fate here in the Land of the Free.

With self-imposed diminished options to choose from, the most productive employees may be excluded, and the firm overall will be less productive than...
