Congress's Ethics Ranks Only Better Than Car Salespeople

By January 14, 2013

Follow me on:

A recent Gallup poll surveyed American perception of the honesty and ethical standards of people in different fields. Nurses ranked highest; car salespeople lowest. Members of Congress were rated just barely above car salespeople (ten vs. eight) and Senators only slightly better (14). You can read the survey results here.

Of more significance to us, perhaps, is that "business executives" ranked well down the list at 21. And surprisingly, we have consistently ranked below bankers (28), even through the current recession, which is perceived by many to have been banker-driven.

While we can't do much individually to change the perception of our profession, we can be sure we maintain high personal ethics standards. Here is an article to help you do that, Scruples Are A Good Thing: Listening to Your Inner Voice.
