You had to know the King was a crook as well as the creepiest corporate ad image ever.

Well, you have to realize that adding a penney to every pound of tomatos a worker picks would add about 1/3 of a cent to the cost of a tomato. About 1/9th of a cent to the cost of producing a hamburger.

It would cost a penny more to make 9 hamburgers..

A devasating blow to the bottom line. Can't have starving workers driving a company into bankruptcy with such irresponsible demands..
