Finally the penny is dropping
Accountability is long overdue. The churning of underperforming businesses should be illegal. Especially when the poor sods who purchase on good faith have been subject to fraud.
When the business model is based on underpaid work propping up the business, executive heads should roll. Especially when they have been paid bonuses because of that underfunded work propping up the business.
The Boards should also be held to account for refusing to take off the blindfolds. If the Board of a major franchisor cannot spot a used car salesman from 10 paces, they have no right to be sitting on the Board.
Especially not in an executive position!
