I have a confession to make. While I've been self-employed, I've never owned a complex enterprise like a manufacturing business. Which means that I have to look to those of you who do for insight into the details and challenges involved.

On the other hand, I'm also aware that while the mechanisms may be unwieldy or burdensome, the intent is usually laudable, if, perhaps, misguided. As I once was told, the road to a certain infernal destination is paved with good intentions....
