Fair article. Hardly surprising. If you have ever worked with executives you would know they all lack empathy. It is a requirement to being one. That pesky empathy thing gets in the way of profits, and we don’t want that now do we!

“Goes to show what a pledge from America’s CEO’s is worth.”

I would add that “pledge” was most likely prompted by messages like the one linked below, not honesty or empathy, just keep the angry masses at bay.

The CEOs smiled as they learned just how this pandemic was going to give them more power, if just for the cost of a headache here and there. The bottom line* is the bottom line and the bottom line is sacred too them along with next quarter’s stock price.

*guaranteed not by real activity but by corporate bailouts
