I'm not greedy at all. I make enough to feed clothe and harber my family, that's all. We entertain ourselve and live a very simple life. I would be very willing to take a pay cut if I made upwards of 100 000/year. But I don't even make half that much. And about loosing your job thing... You have to screw your head on straight there budy. Your thought process is all messed up. You have to be upper middle class or more to have that reasoning or wish to be and are vey greeding SOB. We work to live, we don't live to work. We don't make much and providing for my family is number one for me.
For the good of the third world?!?!?! The best thing we can do for the third world is to leave them alone and stop using them as our corporations see fit. They can fend for themselves if only we could butt out.
Again treatement for desease. Just look at the US and their FDA. They regulate food and drugs. Produce bad food (McDowels) and sell them medicine to compensate for the bad food. If you go and publicly say that vitamin C is the cure for scurvy you will be charged or even put in jail. Why? Becuase if the FDA doesn't say it's a cure then "it isn't" If that isn't greed I dunno what is. How about senate bill S-510 in the US. And human nature is not greed. It's your nature.

Tell it to who? Do you have a job? Then you should tell them yourself. If you demand a certain salary to do your work, then you are just as guilty. To afford your increased salary and/or benefits, the "corporation" has to make more money.
You wouldn't take $6/month to dig ditches because you've got options.
