In the famous words of Nicki Minaj, “I am sh*ting on them” and this is what big companies are doing.

Do you remember the time when companies built products to last?

A time when companies valued their loyal customer following and their brand name more than anything else. A time when companies stood behind their products with guarantees. A time when the word recall did not exist. Unfortunately, this time no longer exist.

With the increasing demand for goods/services, like consumers, companies are searching for the cheapest and most efficient manufacturers to create their products. Sometimes at the cost of producing faulty merchandise unknowingly to their end users: the customers.

Many consider this unethical business practices, yet many companies have done this very act with little or no government discipline. For example, Hotpoint recently had a company insider state the company knew the dryers were faulty but told employees to say they were safe.

What can be done about this?

There are many things individuals can do. Take the legal route.

If you know or believe a company is committing unethical business practices contact a government regulatory agency in your country. Here are some links where you may find them.
