How can you be sure they are saving them in plain text? And is this a password you entered yourself, or auto-generated?
It was the password I entered, I use a password manager to generate random passwords.

Although, I do agree it's wrong if they can get your plain-text password on demand.
If they got their database hacked the hackers would have access to passwords and logins, many of which would have been reused across other sites too. So the hackers could access bank account, amazon accounts etc.

Also, why not name and shame? At least we can try to avoid them then.
and make it even more public to hackers that they store passwords in plain text, I don't think that would be sensible. "Hey look everyone, if you try and hack company X's site you can get hold of my password as well as thousands of other logins and passwords" I'd be willing to bet that the Web API has a service that returns the user logins and passwords in plain text.
