Open House/Caustic Remarks

Sorry.  "Stupid" was a very poor choice of words.  I should have said that
some people feel disheartened and disappointed with their choice of
profession.  But is the dissatisfaction with the environment (such as a
difficult boss, poor working conditions, etc.) rather than with the
profession itself?

I require and provide more financial reward without the business and
