Actually - they do hand out jobs for those who having achieved the proper education and who demonstrate the necessary skills.
If, on the other hand, you spent your college years taking 6 years to get a degree in english, well then have fun working as a night manager at Blockbusters.
Guess that's why i know people with engineering degrees who have lost their jobs and have been looking for months. Proper education as you call it is no guarantee of a job these days.

What really disgusts me is that if this we're a Tea Party protest, these exact same people who are jabbering about "unwashed hippies" would be singing praises for how those good people were standing up for our rights. They would be screaming bloody murder about how the arrests were violating the Constitution rights of assembly and government redress. It's really, really sad that people are so politicized that they can't look around and realize who is actually on their side.

The TEA Party rallies were 100% peaceful with no riots, no rapes, no destruction of private property and they didn't block traffic or bother people.

The Wall Street RIOTS are violent, vulgar, crude, disruptive, destroys property, trashes parks and lasts for week after week.

TEA Party SUPPORT the nation and US Constitution; the Wall Street idiots are commies and lazy bum hippy wanna-bes that should be deported to Iran or China.

They have no ability to discern that the fascists they serve are destroying the futures of their own children.
The amerikan people are little more than a cowering pack of cowards. Enacting a fascist state will be an easy prospect with such a terrified populace.
You spean American like a NAZI! These commie-protesters are guilty of treason and should be shot. If they blocked my business they would find themselves in the hospital! I have the 2nd amendment right to protect my property and I would.

THE COPS SHOULD USE LIVE AMMO AND DEAL WITH THESE TERRORISTS AS IF THEY WERE MUSLIMS

How would you know? I have been working for well over 30 years. I have kept the promises and obligations of many people, who are all living very well off lives. I'm tired of working for selfish greedy assed people. Have you ever read "Tale of two cities"? Do you know what caused the french revolution?

Instead of riots we need a Federal "equal benefit" law that requires that every employee, from CEO to janitor, gets the exact same benefits such as sick leave, insurance, etc.

A person's value to a company for talent or education should be rewarded with higher (reasonable) salaries!

EVERY employee should be treated the same! Where I work, an hourly employee on disability gets a max of $200 a week (after insurance) to live on. A salary person gets 100% of their paycheck to live on; THAT IS NOT FAIR AND SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!.

My son's wife had a baby and he could only afford to take a couple of unpaid FMLA days off with the baby. His boss had a baby last year and got 12 weeks off WITH FULL PAY to enjoy with his son.

SHOOT THE RIOTERS AND PASS FAIR LABOR LAWS!

Feminists will have none of this. They own the system. They declared all women as oppressed victims and all men as criminals. As long as they have final say, your son will continue to suffer.

They do not want true equality. They only want equal outcomes at their discretion.

Like the tea party, they hijacked the occupy protests. Watch the media coverage the media presents. They love to show female protesters as victims of male police officers. There are male victims but showing them being brutalized/abused/harmed as victims is not considered "politically correct".
