There's no political line to cross there. While at its heart the Occupy movement might have been worthwhile, what it turned into was a bunch of kids whining about how they can't find a high level job in a major city right out of college. Most of them Tweeted and Instagrammed from iPhones, a product made by a company who contributes to the exact problem they stood against, and others were there simply because they were unwilling to relocate for jobs.
Part of the problem is that we are conditioned to think that a college education lands us a great job. In today's job market, that's not the case. People still need to start small and work their way up, no matter what their education...value to a company has to be proven, and great jobs are not just handed out. That is the main thing that many members of the Occupy movement have no grasp of.
