it honestly almost always reads as people saying "all the people who have jobs at this company and worked on this thing including the artist don't deserve to get payed". its like...most of these companies get their main source of income from their groups. most mid tier (and even some larger companies) only have 2-3 highly active groups at a time. its just so confusing to me when certain fans see a company running their business and selling their only products, their groups, and feel the need to say the company is "greedy" or "money hungry". like, ok? they kind of need money...to run?
i feel like there are so many other valid things to critique and many i agree with but this one always rubs me the wrong way as someone who works at a large corporation. like i HOPE my company is money hungry so i can get a raise and a bonus for all the hard work i put in.
