Can Corporate Leaders Be Good Citizens?

The owner of the Chobani yogurt company, Hamdi Ulukaya, made news last week when he announced that he will give his 2,000 employees a 10 percent ownership share when the company is sold. The average stake will be worth $150,000. Several of America's largest corporations also made news by canceling events in North Carolina, to protest that state's discriminatory new laws against transgender people. Is there a larger trend here? Are some corporations becoming allies of progressive reform -- or does it just look that way because most of the corporate elite and the Republican Party are now so far to the right?
