Re: Who wants to be a doctor?

You won't like my answer.  I was released from a position of Chief Civil
Structural engineer, partly because I went to management and *required*
that my people be treated (and paid) as professionals.  Management had, and
probably still does, the "Landlord/serf" mentality.

I had previously had the opportunity and rare priviledge of working with
(note, not for) a *real* company.  I have discovered that there aren't too
many of those. 

If you insist, I'll give names and dates.  I have *no* problem pointing out
those who get rich from slave labour.
