  1. You forgot ones who are ALL about the money and not people. Anyone who will do anything and with no remorse to increase their own bottom line. Anyone who refuses to communicate with decorum and respect. Anyone who is a bully and think that they are entitled. Anyone who is disconnected from his employees and can not empathize with their plight. Anyone who will make decisions arbitrarily without thinking how it will effect the “little guy”…Great job! Keep up the good work!
