Many viewers have raved about the decision by Mr. Solis to quit his high-paying job for one that will pay less than half his current salary but will help others.
By following a simple twitter stream during the episode, many viewers tweeted comments like, “if only real executives would follow Carlos’ lead!”, “stunned by a Carlos’ decision to quit his job. #impressive”, and a few simple “Go Carlos!” (many of the comments I couldn’t translate the Spanish from the show’s Latino fans).
In talking to some friends who are also loyal fans of Marc Cherry’s hit television series, I found that they were all very proud of Carlos. One of them even related it to the current Occupy movement going on all around us, which sparked the idea for this very feature.
So what do the viewers take from this fictional act of righteousness? I think the answer is simple: Hope.
