    Id like to add here...its NOT the young people that made it this way...they werent even born yet...its my generation that created this work environment of greed at all costs and created all the new world swindles and cheats and steals...
    Its the american baby boomer....I will clarify that with its the top 2% babyboomers...not the working mass's
    Personally, I blame higher education. It's higher ed that's made this world the way it is. You see, once upon a time, you made your way to the top of a company through hard work and years of toiling at lower end jobs. And when you GOT to that high end desk job, you got it because you knew everything there was to know about said company...having done every job there is to do there. No longer. Now, you got people waltzing in, who don't even know the names of 5% of the people they are supposed to be leading, have never worked a day of their life at said company, and based on some books read, and papers written in college...they can run the place. No dice. There is not a single college class in the world that can prepare you to run a company...ANY company, better than simply working in said company for a few years. I would know...I've taken most of those college classes. This creates an large element of incompetence and a general lack of understanding on the side of the administrative staff....which generates distrust and discord between them and the folks they are administrating/leading. Simply put, how the hell can you presume to tell me, person doing job A, that I need to do this, this, and that...and that my timeline to do so is X...without ever having done this, this, and that...to actually know how long it really takes to do so? Take that same idea, and expand it across the board over every task within any given company, and you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about. This discord spreads into every facet, which creates the atmosphere of screw your cubicle neighbor, in order to get that higher salary. because, when talent and ability are no longer the key factors of getting job (thanks to higher education), it becomes more about WHO you know...and how good of friends you are with those people...and how much BETTER of a friend you are to them, than your competition.

    Greed has nothing to do with it, really. Greed is just a motivator.

    I dont profess to have the answers...i just have my opinion...higher education has always been used to exclude and separate...I think that was even more prevalent when I was younger than it is today....but your right...Grasso the last head of Wall Street...who retired with a package worth in the hundreds of millions....started as a high school dropout in a mailroom at wallstreet....imagine that growth from the bottom....YOU CANNOT DO THAT TODAY...they elite would never allow it to happen.

    Yeah, it's really a problem. The "business Plan" is either some sort of preditory offensive or some other defensive moves that are unscupulous. And it's the people who go along with this stuff! Everybody else is forced into silence because they "have to be thankful for the job they have".
