I think this is the best answer so far.

Also, I think another problem is HR: once a company gets big enough, its HR department gets more and more powerful and they (not the department bosses or supervisors) end up choosing who gets hired and who doesn't. And because they're getting paid by the hour, they don't really give a shit who they let in. On the other hand, when the owners of a small business themselves do the hiring, they're the ones paying for their salary, so they're more likely to hire based on merit rather than to fill quotas.

Are your HR people hourly?

He is saying that HR generally doesn't have an ownership stake in the company.
