Hard work does matter

I'm not sure what you are rambling on about but I disagree with this one statement of yours that is understandable:

"hard work doesn't win elections. Sound bites do."

I actually think hard work does matter in winning elections, despite the short-term ups and downs of sound bites. Might I suggest that you put a little more "hard work" into the thoughts of your comments?

Re: Zee would've been better defended if zor was joint employer

"he committed a crime and he would get the same punishment."

If the glove don't fit you must acquit.

"No"

Yes.

"His attorney is supposed to defend him."

Remember, eight is better than one. The rest of your replies are mostly gibberish.

Re: Zee would've been better defended if zor was joint employer

Darnelle "BUT.. I suspect that if there were joint employer status for franchisors, this franchisee would not be spending time in jail nor would his fine be so high."

No he committed a crime and he would get the same punishment.

Darnelle "If there were joint employer status in which the zor was also culpable, an army of franchisor attorneys would have swarmed around both franchisor and franchisee to make sure the charges didn't stick or were lightened."

No.

Darnelle "All the zee had was his attorney trying his darndest to defend against everyone else."

Don't know what you mean by that? His attorney is supposed to defend him.

Darnelle "Here is where we see how much the sales jingo "Be in business for yourself but not by yourself" by the franchisor to franchise buyers holds up. In the real world, a legal wall has been carefully constructed over the decades between franchisors and franchisees. We see the truth of the relationship when a franchisee gets in trouble. The zor's real mantra is the reverse: "Be in business for me by yourself."

Mostly gibberish. But legal wall thing built over years makes no sense at all.

"Not really immersed in franchising"

So, this social justice warrior, armed with zero knowledge of the industry, kill a family. Gee, maybe your uninformed self should have gotten "immersed" in franchising issues pending in your on legislature before you tried to destroy the industry.

But, hard work doesn't win elections. Sound bites do. Until the hack juice (taxes on business on which teat you nurse) dries up because you killed your host. This will lie in your lap, hack.

Darnelle White's picture

Zee would've been better defended if zor was joint employer

This zee did wrong.

BUT.. I suspect that if there were joint employer status for franchisors, this franchisee would not be spending time in jail nor would his fine be so high.

If there were joint employer status in which the zor was also culpable, an army of franchisor attorneys would have swarmed around both franchisor and franchisee to make sure the charges didn't stick or were lightened.

As New York's AG and the U.S. Department of Labor put their tremendous resources into investigating and prosecuting him, the zee had the zor's very capable attorneys also pointing at him, deflecting scrutiny and distancing their franchisor client by every dotted "i" and crossed "t"under franchising law.

All the zee had was his attorney trying his darndest to defend against everyone else.

Here is where we see how much the sales jingo "Be in business for yourself but not by yourself" by the franchisor to franchise buyers holds up. In the real world, a legal wall has been carefully constructed over the decades between franchisors and franchisees. We see the truth of the relationship when a franchisee gets in trouble. The zor's real mantra is the reverse: "Be in business for me by yourself."
