lunch is for wimps

Hi everybody,

I'm reading a BBC script and I found this expressión "lunch is for wimps" that is not clear for me.

I'll quote the context "...greed is good and lunch is for wimps both coined by the Gordon Gecko character in the fiml Wall Street? Both expressions perfectly describe supposedly common aspects of corporate attitudes in the eighties, and are well- remembered today".

Thanks in advance
