And you thought the traders in Chicago couldn’t stoop any lower. You thought that after placing a huge sign in their office windows saying, “we are the 1%,” these heartless parasites wouldn’t be able to offend the 99%, the Chicago Occupiers protesting outside their building any worse.
Well think again!
In yet another example of the insensitivity of the rich towards the middle class, Chicago Traders once again went to their windows and threw McDonalds’ applications down to the Occupy Chicago protesters below.
The actions of the Traders caused Occupy Chicago to tweet; “Real class acts. This week, it’s McDonald’s job applications they litter from the windows. Soulless place.”
These same traders belong to a financial industry that, through greed and market manipulation, contributed to the present economic crisis. And thanks to the American taxpayers, bailouts were allocated to traders with the hopes that a strong financial sector will eventually amount to a strong middle class, something Republicans call trickle-down economics.
This America, is what the Republicans mean when they say “Trickle-Down Economics.”
