Spare a thought this Labor Day holiday, when you fire up the barbecue for the last weekend of the summer and raise a beer for the workers in this country, for some of the notable men who have lost their jobs over the past 20 years.

We have a saying which translates into "smiling like a farmer with a toothache" which is appropriate when you smile crookedly if the joke is on you. But here the joke is on all of us, I'm afraid.

Looking forwards to a similar article on US congressmen, Carrie. They need only change the last part of the title.

If the real people fail they are set upon and made to pay back for the rest of their lives will the upper crust whether private sector, government or star and they get nothing barely a slap on the wrist.

I guess its true anyone who makes loads of money just are not truthful people it all comes down to BIG TIME GREED. Its always the bottom line of any large business. You can include our Gov't in this also. Its a real shame people lie and cheat so bad. When I was growing up you were told to always tell the truth. I guess they were not listening.

Its a real shame their cheating has such a major effect on all our lives. We will never get ahead even though we work so hard at trying. I know if I were one of them I would not be able to sleep at night, knowing I had such a impact on people, the economy, foreclosures, inflated prices, ect. Its a real crime that so many are getting away with. The Welfare System for all those who could work need to have a time limit collecting, after that you are on your own, even if it is minimum wage. They need to help themselves. Or our whole Country will be in foreclosure & bankrupt.

If we were to all work together to better America it would make such a difference in our lives. But the rich are not willing to give up anything to make this happen. And the poor not willing to give up their Welfare Checks. So the Middle Class will still be punished making the rich richer, and keep the poor with their Welfare Entitlements? so they claim. I think NOT !

GOD only helps those, who help themselves. So get working. Get off your A$$E$.

They are right up there with athletes celebrities, and super models ( such a socially important job).

Actually athletes, celebrities, and super models are much more worthy of their salaries ~ at least they are entertaining and not stealing from the poor. They certainly have more to offer society than the majority of CEO's who make their livings on the backs of others.

No wonder there is never any money left for us tax payers as the government supports the big corporations with our hard earned taxpayer money. This has to be stopped NOW!

The poor fast-food employees can kiss their idea of a small raise in the minimum wage, because the corporate big wigs need their inflated riches

CONgre$$ seems to get the big bucks for nothing as well - so when you're finally run out of politics, you can always become CEO of some evil empire..or vice versa!
