    sorry, you want to inject emotobabble into the marketplace I cannot help that. the fact remains that the market should set wages and its stupid for corporate management to pay more for a commodity than its competition

    greed is an interesting concept.

    Greed is greed nothing about it. When your giant company can afford to treat, and pay the people that work and keep your company running you should do it. After all without these "no skill workers" your company would fail.
