Business School Graduates - Don't Work for Billionaires

A writer in commondreams.org encourages today's business school graduates to examine their career choices. Instead of pursuing what might be considered traditional routes for freshly minted MBA's, use their initiative and acumen in a more societal beneficial pursuit.

The writer posits that countless low-wage workers running fast-food registers or stocking retail shelves don't have any choice about whether to get results for billionaires. There is no lack of takers for jobs within the military industrial complex - those lawyers, accountants, lobbyists yet others who wake up every day to assist billionaires and corporations hide an believed $8 trillion in trusts, covering corporations and offshore tax havens.

Instead consider operating in public schools and vocational schools that require your innovative suggestions to serve our kids, or put that business training to work helping the next generation of employee owners expand their stake in enterprises, stabilizing jobs and spreading wealth ownership more broadly.
