You are asking academics, union employees, and government workers to feel sorry for business leaders?<quoted text>
A large portion liberals are academics, union employees or government workers. Most are clueless when it comes to business issues. They view business leaders as cruel tyrants that should be operating primarily to serve the good of society. Makes for a good fairy tale but nothing more.
Why is it that you feel like businesses need anyone to feel sorry for them?
The people that make those business grow and make money are the people who put their blood and sweat into those businesses, the academics, union workers, receptionist, mechanics, clerks, laborors, basically - the front line. Why should they feel sorry for their boss who in 95% of businesses are making 6-7 figures a year?
I'm not saying that we make them into bad people, because that they are not. Do they need to pay higher payroll and taxes for their business, no. Should they be individually responsible for the income they earn? YES. Just like everyone else is, down to that receptionist.
