Jurgis encounters Tamoszius, who tells him that at the company his father is going to work for some of the bosses make such deals in order to put more money into their pockets (like the deal they've made with Antanas). When the bosses’ supervisors find out, they make the bosses give part of their pay in order to stay out of trouble, and the whole scam moves up the chain of command. Durham, Tamoszius explained, is a company run by a man seeking to make as much money as possible and he “did not care in the least how he did it.”
