The pope seems to think that there's a higher morality than that of the marketplace and bottom line. Ayn Rand would not be pleased.
I'll take your word for it on Ayn Rand. I don't pretend to be an expert on her.
Having said that, there are two immutable principles that I have learned in my life:
- If you don't maintain your machines, they will eventually break.
- If you don't treat your employees like human beings, they will eventually break.
- Either scenario might end up breaking you.

(Nothing emboldens the wicked so greatly as the lack of courage on the part of the good -- Leo XIII)
If you don't treat your employees like human beings, they will eventually break.
The idea with some seems to be that you're not a good manager if you don't treat your workers like dogs.
I suspect that part of the problem is that many with wealth and authority lack real experience with doing useful physical labor and so they lack respect for such work and those that do it.
