It's Always About Greed

I was reading a report on the market meltdown and came across this comment:

it' always about greed.
The funny thing is that there don't seem to be significant numbers of people asking their employers for lower pay. Nor does there seem to be a voluntary movement of any size of people willing to pay higher taxes. Well excepting Public Employee Unions who hope to benefit from higher taxes. Haven't they heard that greed is bad? I have never seen the government exception to the greed "rule" propounded. Maybe it is just one of those things that everybody knows. I guess the main political division in the country is between those who think government greed is good and those who are of the opposite opinion.

Greed is always a problem of some other group.
The union people who go on strike for higher pay, less hours and more benefits can not be greedy.
The persons who hide behind union contracts and HR, doing little or nothing for a good salary can not be greedy, but the guy who risks his money and works his butt off is greedy!!

"it' always about greed."

See my post in the comment section one down.

That damn "IT"!

Define the "greed" you object to, and be VERY specific.

Hugh is on the right path. Just don't muddle the message....Simple...declarative...sentences.

"I feel that union employees who go on strike for higher pay, fewer hours and more benefits are greedy".

Someone made a comment I like "blaming the meltdown on greed is like blaming plane crashes on gravity"
