I used to work as an autoshop secretary before I had to leave for personal reasons, but I stayed on to help my boss find a replacement for me. Within two weeks of the job being advertized, we had 54 applications. Nearly half of the people who applied had a masters degree. So people are trying to find jobs, there's just a lot of competition and even menial jobs requiring little or no schooling are hard to come by.

Point One: Since the 1980's the economy has doubled yet the money we (the 99%) make has not doubled where has this money gone? To the big corporations that hire you.
Point Two: Why is it that us the 99% pays much more taxes percentage wise compared to big corporations? 35% compared to 15%.
Point Three: Large corporations control the stock market. They purchase stocks in large quantities when the stocks are low (raising the economy) then sell large amounts of stocks (dropping the economy) when the economy is high.

Not sure if anyone's actually looked at the unemployment numbers lately, compared to job creation, or anything of the sort, or even applied for jobs lately, but there are no ******* jobs. Most of these people have college degrees and cannot find work while they drown in loan debt. Today, OP was definitely a Richard Simmonsgot.

Because the unemployed and financially shat-upon should just get jobs! Thanks for solving all our problems!

Listen. I will be working overtime at minimum wage, at a job I worked my ass off to get. I come from an incredibly wealthy family. However, I am still 100% supportive of the OWS protests. The point isn't that they don't want to find jobs, the point is that they can't. There are so many unemployed people, and not nearly enough jobs.
The protests are about how corporations get bailed out, and unlimited support from the Government, while millions of people live below the poverty line, and struggle daily just to eat. How dare you speak out against protests that you know NOTHING about.
And disgusting to think how many people agree with you.
Ignorance is all too prevalent in today's youth.

They're protesting job shortages and corporate greed, so you support the fact that they tell them to get a job.

My main problem with these protestors is that they have no common sense, at least that's how it seems to me. They expect to come out of university and find a job that pays 100 000 a year, in a piss poor economy. I realize that corporations are at fault somewhat, but you have to remember that this isn't the 60s, when the economy was strong, due to American investors and post war expansion keeping the economy strong. Now, there's more competition for a job than ever before, fact. Population: deal with it. I realize it's no one's dream to be an educated engineer flipping burgers, but you have to start somewhere. Let's say I was educated as an architect, and couldn't find a job. I would take whatever I could find as something else, and perhaps get an internship, or try to start my own business. These protestors expect everything to be handed to them. Now, I realize that this is a general statement, and I'm sure that some people have good intentions, but that's the general idea I get from these protestors.

*In a piss-poor economy caused by bankers being greedy ***** and bending the system over for their own wallets. They aren't protesting because they want jobs, they are protesting the influence of money in politics. That's where the 99% came from: the small percentage of the population with a huge percentage of the country's wealth have too much power. Half of congress are millionaires and they pass laws to make life easier on themselves while ************ the economy and the average citizens who don't have the money to bribe/lobby politicians to pass laws in their favor.

If I ever became a ceo or executive of some huge company, I would never take more than like a 200,000 dollar salary. With a billion people on this planet starving every day, nobody should have that much money. Buying things does not bring real happiness

It's called personal finance for a reason, you're responsible for your financial situation. There are plenty of jobs available that these people could have but they're "too good" to work at a fast-food joint or to wait tables.

mainly because they've been taught from a young, young age that unless you don't want to be "flipping burgers" then you go to college or university and thus, it is understandable that they will get annoyed when the same people who told them that are telling them to go flip burgers.

Despite the fact that I understand that jobs are hard to come by at this point, I really do think the occupy thing is stupid. It's gotten out of hand, half the people out there have no idea WHAT exactly they're talking about; guys are walking around half-dressed or wearing Guy Fawkes masks, it's just devolved into pure idiocy.

yessss because arguing on funnyjunk about it is really gonna get anyone, anywhere shut up about it and bring me some god damn funny.
User avatar #26 to #25 - polodeagua (11/18/2011) [-]
You do realize that a lot of people look at Funnyjunk as a community, and not just for mindless internet laughs. That's why no only "funny" makes front page. Shockingly people on the internet are capable of complex thoughts.
Which is why Congress was so desperate in their attempts to censor the internet.
It has helped the protesters organize, plan, and share their experiences. As well as show the genuine side of the OWS protests.

4 years and $250,000 in students loans. But the only job I could get pays minimum wage. TOOOOTALLY worth it.
