Not saying I could do it but negotiations and bargaining is part and parcel of what I do for a living so I see the other side to this.
But on moral positions I struggle.

I would only think less of a friend or family member if their career involved something outright unethical, and that they were perfectly okay with it. I don't respect people who don't have a conscience.
I don't recall ever feeling forced to do anything unethical in any job I've had. I'm a pretty honest stickler for rules myself, so I wouldn't stick around in a job/career that forced me to be unethical.

delirium's dh, I work in an RSL. I started off as a casual doing clean up for some easy cash all those years ago and eventually found my way to duty management.whilst I am not creating the promotions that entice the player, I am helping to market them to the player through my front line position. Despite this I consider my job honest as I work very hard, during unsocial hours to earn an honest living.
So my point is... whilst the job is potentially unethical, the person performing it is still putting in an honest days work for an honest days pay (providing they are a worker/employee and not the major beneficiary of the questionable gains.
I hope I'm making some sense... my 2 year old has been climbing all over me.

When I worked in an electrical retail store, we used to heavily steer people away from renting things. The cost was huge and it relies on the vulnerable that wouldn't be approved for interest free cards (GE/GO etc).
For the same reasons, I dislike companies like Motor Finance Wizard or payday loan companies.

I worked in a gaming room while I was a full time student at uni and I have to say, it didn't sit right with me at all. Especially seeing elderly people spending their bus money on poker machines. Very sad. My boss told me I wasn't allowed to talk to any of them about the posters on the walls regarding gambling addiction and where to get help. They had to just decide on their own to pay attention to those advertisements. Needless to say, I didn't work there for long. Maybe a few months. It was depressing.

And to the above Pp, some venues are more ethical than others. I work for a top 10 and more commonly top 5 club in NSW, we are encouraged to help people seek help. We have all kinds of information in many different languages posted around different areas. I've encouraged and helped people take part in self exclusion programs. I've asked people to leave as part of such programs. I also understand that all venues are so inclined to help their patrons make choices that impacts on their revenue. It's sad and I don't blame you for not being able to continue your employment with such an unethical employer.
