Itís pseudo economics to think paying employees higher wages equals business instability.
Large companes like BA also have social responsibilities. Underpaying their staff means that those staff have less money to spend in their communities which negatively affects other businesses. And poorly paid staff are more likely to be eligible for state benefits which we all pay for and thus indirectly subsidise BA profits.
