” Imagine a small town called Murika where a rich man named Mr. Garch owned a big factory that employed most of the people in the town. His cousin owned the bank, his best buddy was the mayor, and his business partner’s wife ran the local newspaper. But the good people of Murika didn’t mind because they were getting paid well, and local businesses were booming. People liked Mr. Garch so much that they called him by his first name, Oli.
Then a few years back, Oli started cutting the bonuses of his employees. The local newspaper gave really convincing reasons why this is necessary. Oli also promised that good times will be back soon if people just worked a little harder.”
