Hard to feel pity for medical device sales reps making in excess of $200K often without any education/medical credentials. The industry is among those to blame for the spiraling costs of healthcare.
First, your assertion re: "often without any education" is just silly. I'm not enthralled by healthcare sales reps making 200%-600% of RN-level incomes, but their role is more substantive than you acknowledge.
Second, though am am no fan of the President (massive understatement), I see little evidence that daily layoff trends changed much in the election run-up as compared with its aftermath
Third, this thread is more political than MT. Should be moved to the PTB IMO.
