  •  It's not just "the financial sector" (0+ / 0-)

    The main ire of the occupiers of Wall Street is not directed simply toward people who are wealthy. Rather, it is directed at the financial sector

    I can't speak for "the occupiers of Wall St," but surely the ire should be demonstrated at all the unproductive and antiproductive members of the 1% - the CEO's who improve their bottom line via layoffs, the CEO's whose idea of "growing the company" is buying other companies (and then laying off the "redundant" workers), etc. All the things that Apple under Steve Jobs was not. It is corporate America that is the problem, almost without exception, not just the financial sector. In short, the problem is CAPITALISM.
