Depends on how you define "the industry." Integrator, sales, dealer, manufacturer? Cameras, VMS, 'solutions', other..?

There are many people in this industry want "out" but don't know how to sustain the same income in another industry.
It's "fair" if that person wanted to switch industries for whatever reason.
It's "unfair" if it implies that anything else would be better than the security industry.

Anybody who doesnt like this industry is banannas. 100% Unfair.
I think its a love/hate thing and thats probably true of just about any profession. There are times I don't like the security industry and in some cases, downright hate it BUT....when I calm down & move past whatever caused those feelings I realize that I really do love it. The customers, vendors, competitors etc are generally all friendly, helpful and have a great sense of humor. I've made a good living in the industry and alot of friends. If someone is disgruntled with the industry and more hating than loving it, they should definitely do what that guy did - move into another industry and see if thats more fun. I don't think it was a fair or unfair statement, thats not the right question. Better would be to ask how many of us feel the same way & would jump at the chance to get out of the industry. A poll on that may be interesting.
