Can't argue with that logic. I guess I'm not considered a patriot by Dubya's standards - you know, me being against the PATRIOT Act and all.Originally Posted by Neomalthusian
Did you ever imagine that "pride and purpose" is a form of compensation? Do you think that I come home as an accountant with some strong sense of self that I helped a business with their tax needs? Do you think that a corporate lawyer gets some personal joy from a job well done at the faceless multinational company he represents?Originally Posted by Paschendale
Certain jobs need to pay more money - not just because of the education, training, and financially/statistically measurable factors involved. Hell, I'd love to be a teacher and make a comparative salary. People think that I'm the "leader of generations". I can do no wrong. I'm dedicating myself and my life to kids. More than that blood-sucking beancounter, or that heartless corporate prick.
So yeah...eventually the sentimental hokum and socially appeasing crap has to take a back seat to simple economics and statistical requirements.
