See bold...In many if not most instances. Not all.
The left fails to understand the concept of "free" in free enterprise. We are dealing with a hundred year old defective concept of business, one somewhat true of the days when this failed philosophy/religion was conceived out of blatant class envy.
Because the entire ideology is based on a controlled economy, from setting minimum wages to "human engineering taxation" like Obamacare, they have no concept of the results of competition. Because they see government as a place to reward friends - see Obama's appointments - they do not 'get' how the private sector works. They, in fact, have not figured out that the US is mostly a service based economy, that a service based company is easy to start. In one year of Business administration they would learn that the key to profits is not screwing workers, but paying them well enough they stay with you, and the profit center is based entirely on being better than the other guys who are, in fact, attempting to hijack your customers on a daily basis.
