Regarding a much maligned industry

Pharma accounted for 43 percent of all U.S. giving:

Donations made in the U.S. totaled $7.8 billion, and pharmaceutical companies contributed 43 percent of this total. No other industry even comes close to matching the donations from pharmaceutical companies, reported Drug companies gave $5,585 on a per-employee basis. The world's second most generous industry, media and publishing, gave $1,549 per worker.

I'm not saying the industry is perfect by any means. I'm simply saying I was happy to see this, since I'm currently part of said industry.

I'm not personally giving 13% of my income to charity, so, maybe I should take a lesson.
