lunch fight: ethics and responsibility, private vs public sectors
So I got into a big fight at lunch today, and I'd like to hear opinions from the rabble here:
Which is worse? Unethical practices and/or wasteful spending in a big corporation, or in a government agency/some level of government? We agreed law firms are s special case ( :rolleyes: )
I argued that public sector is worse, because you're dealing with the captive audience of taxpayers. I can't choose whether to pay a bridge toll, or pay taxes.
I can choose whether to buy products or services from a certain corporation, or not, if I don't like how they do business.
