I'm just going to post this. this doesn't have to do with whitney but just everyone's attitudes towards business and people in business.
when a person picks a career, they're supposed to pick what they enjoy. some people really like the feeling of success when you make a business work, because running a business isn't easy, some people like to manage books, some like to speculate on the economy, some like the art of selling. regardless they go into business. do they make more money than people in communications or education? for the most part yes. Do you hear people in the education and communication sector complain about not making enough? all the time. most of the people who are behind this-not the wealthy execs- are people who are just trying to make enough to get by, just like everyone else. if they see an oppertunity to do this to make sure the company stays running and they can keep thier jobs, and thus a house and food on the table, can you really hate them? I'm sure alot of people would do the same thing. there are no doubt d-bags in bsuiness-i'd be the first to say it-but more businesses are ringing in huge numbers, they're just doing enough to keep jobs. This isn't the most ethical or maybe even effective way of handling the whitney death buzz, but they arn't the scum that everyone makes them out to be
