Will losing Burger King make Americans care about corporate taxes?

What, care about corporations in general? Well, no. Corporations are sociopaths. They do not care about anything other than the bottom line: profit and survival. Allegiance to a nation, never.
They will do anything to top their competition and maximize profits. They do so at the expense of the people who work for them and even the customer.
They will please the customer to a point, but if profits are at risk for the top earners of the company and of course the shareholders, then goods and services are reduced to control cost.
They earn their keep on the backs of the minimum wage worker and fight to keep these wages low for as long as they can.
So, Burger King, go ahead, leave. You will be doing Americans a favor by showing your true colors. If people in the USA boycott you, then you will learn something and they will be saved from eating crap.
If Americans are so enamored by the lowlife crap you peddle as food, well then, Americans will get what they deserve, more bad food and a low standard of living from your cheapass jobs.
But for those of us who have a brain and do not eat your crap, see ya! Wish you had left sooner.

Well then, since everyone else is not paying taxes it looks like the taxes on wages and property and consumption taxes will be carrying the load.

I think it opens many avenues for Income potential for local civilians everywhere for food trade or for convent carts to have small mobile to sell affordable hotdogs and burgars on a paper plate delivery to home or park. Burgar King employees got maybe $29-64 a day during work. I think the same amount can be achieved in little foodcarts behind a adult tricycle with equal or better quality food at lesser prices. Grilled cheese and potato chips and soda $4.25 Chili cheese dog and fires or chips and soda $5.00 CLEANER and cheaper then a resturaunt. Legal and honest remember bi-annual taxes people to keep really legal from audits. ANy fraudulent claims those people go to prison and IRS owes you for harassment for even thinking to look at your budget. then your rich.
