So, no free market? Wayfair MUST take the contract with bcfs?
If there was only a SINGLE bed supplier, that argument you’re making, which is all over the internet pundits, youtubers, twitters and bloggers (copycat), would be logical.
But it’s not.
They’re holding the kids and adults for far too long in too crowded conditions.
Make a profit off of a massive error? Sure. That’s America.
It’s also enabling or aiding and abetting. SOMEBODY will provide food and beds. That’s capitalism. But they shouldn’t be packed like sardines in the first place.
If you’re going to implement a new indefinite holding pattern and build private facilities for profit, get your ducks lines in a row.
I have ZERO sympathy for BCFS supply chain issues.
I support a free market which includes being free to turn down contracts. Compelling Wayfair to supply BCFS because “just think of the children” is horse crap. Wayfair should drop out, save their damaged reputation, and BCFS can find another supplier OR better still, get out of the private prison/detention facility business altogether.
It’s a shit model ethically, but as they say on their site:
“BCFS has experienced unprecedented growth and now has offices from coast-to-coast and on four continents.”
Just look who they serve? Why it’s:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,”
