Why companies and CEOs treat their workers like garbage.

A new book,  The End of Loyalty: The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in America, argues that the primary focus on shareholder value has enabled decisions that are bad for workers and consumers.

This culture, [Rick] Wartzman argues, has “explicitly elevated shareholders above employees.” Looking at issues like the rising disdain for unions, the emergence of Ronald Reagan, and, quite simply, less corporate focus on the common good, Wartzman makes the case that the increasing focus on top salaries and shareholder returns has warped American life.
