I know you hate GS but read this story. This was related to me by my sister-in-law who works at the Salt Lake branch of GS. She is an incredibly hard worker, she works 10 hours a day there and worked very hard to put herself through school and to get an interview with them. Here is the story.
She was standing at the window with her coworker looking out at the OWS protesters in the park across the street when her coworker told her this story. "Wow, I grew up in a two room house in Jamaica. Most of these people are living better than I did all growing up. I worked extremely hard to move to America and pay for my schooling, and now they're protesting? Do they realize how hard I've worked to get here? How hard everyone has worked to get here?"
This just shows the ridiculousness of OWS claiming that upper members of large corporations such as GS have never had to struggle a day of their lives. They have had to work extremely hard to get to the top. I agree that some members of the upper class are using their earned capital in corrupt ways, but it's unfair to characterize them ALL this way. Because, simply put, they are NOT all that way.
