This is an important thing to note:
I also am concerned about the 99 percent slogan, which lumps together people in households that take in $593,000 a year or less. Perhaps the guy earning $500,000 a year isn't doing as well as before, but I question how much he has in common with a woman who has spent her adult life among the working poor. A college graduate who can't find a job is in a different position than a convicted felon battling a drug addiction who can't find steady employment. Someone losing his $300,000 home is not the same as someone losing her $50,000 home.

I (sort of) fall into the 'college graduate' group - I have no idea if I would have much trouble finding a job (probably not, my field is pretty safe), but even if I did, I'd still have the option of doing what I'm doing now. Thanks to the obscene amount of knowledge, experience and education (much of it centered around working the upper-class system) that goes in to graduating from college, you just can't compare groups that easily. Sorry.
So here's something to think about for potential supporters (Via autostraddle). If Occupy Wall Street accomplishes absolute nothing besides shaking up the worldviews of a bunch of privileged-to-various-degrees people, it will still accomplish something very, very worthwhile.
