The Corporations are the predators most people have to deal with on a daily basis. The gangs and syndicates are more openly violent, but chances are ninety percent of the money that leaves your hands goes to the corporations one way or another. It’s that much worse if you’re one of the poor schmucks that relies on the corporation to get your money in the first place. There are no unions, no protective labor laws, and not much hope for those slaving away for the corporate giants. Those who are lucky enough to not be literal slaves probably have all their money tied up in company store debts. A soft approach is to give employees an allowance that is only good in the corporate outlet, a second favorite option is to have to work a full month before getting paid, but allow a line of credit at the corporate outlet which comes out of the check before the employee gets paid. The markups are often crippling which puts the employee into an inescapable cycle of indentured servitude.
