  • The Business...

    The employees of that business may not have any knowledge of what the "higher ups" are doing or if they are also contributing to the corruption. I don't feel like you can blame the workers for the mistakes of the managment.

    The government can certainly try and control if/what they will give to this company that has bad business practices. But, at the same time, with each new placement of management, I'm sure there is a promise of better practices/behavior. You can't blame a person in the new position for the bad deeds of the former people. It would be unfair to the person in that position, as well as it trickling down to damage the employees in various ways. No money = less jobs, less training,etc.
