“Yeah, that's the sarcasm part. However, I use sarcasm to hide my revulsion at the hypocrisy of religious organizations, and businesses, that are having a problem with their insurance companies covering their students and staffs use of contraceptives.
I believe if they are going to use the religious principles card that they have to apply it across all aspects of their organization. Obviously, they can't do that. It's discriminatory. So why should they get to use it now? Besides, they are merely providing insurance, not contraceptives, etc. Perhaps they'd like their insurance companies to deny any services for LGBT students and staff too?”
“I understand Wall St, do not patronize me. You do realize that "Wall Street" is a general term for finance, with hundreds of different types of jobs. If you are going to rail against finance, just be specific to the profession you are talking about. That's what I meant by sweeping generalizations.”
“I understand what you are saying, they have to put in their time, and most don't make it far in banking. My point is that in investment banking the hours and all nighters apply to multiple levels. The all nighters and awful hours occur more with interns and analysts, but banking means absolutely brutal hours for a lot of levels.”
“These hours and all nighters are not unique to interns. They are expected of associates, analysts, VPs, etc. To make this just about interns is not telling the full story. This is about the culture of investment banking for many positions.”

“I can only speak for the investment banks in NYC, summer interns get paid good money - may be different abroad, and perhaps he wasn't in investment banking? I may have just assumed that. No doubt, not worth his life. It's so sad, such a shame.”
