    The idea is that they think they are hurting the big corporations, but in the long run all they do is hurt the little guy trying to get to work. This is along the failed lines of thought as the boycott a gas station for a day. It's not going to do anything and if you are even remotely lucky enough to hurt any revenue of a corporation (which this wouldn't), the first casualty is the little guy getting laid off.

    It's dishonest claims like this that make the OWS look, well dishonest... Was it co-opted by the republican party, you bet, but it started to gain steam as a protest to bush's tarrp... OWS would have been co--opted by the democrat party, cept, it fell apart...

    Americans want jobs to be here but refuse to support anything that is made in this country. Farms are being controlled by their vendors because people will not buy from a farm anymore. Consumers reward companies who slash jobs, outsource overseas, treat their employees like crap and other measures to keep costs down. It is counter productive to the economy we want to see built. It is nothing more than greed. It pure hypocrisy. People demand from our government that jobs arent being created and then go and buy some chinese garbage at Walmart. People get upset when their small business fails and then go to McDonalds for dinner. The government is not the problem here. So many conservatives and others love to blame Obama for our economic problems. I call bull**** on that. Obama or his policies are not to blame for our problems. Greedy ass, hypocritical consumers are what is wrong with our country.

    Please tell me how the democratic party had a hand in starting this movment?
    Because what i can tell is the people are also protesting against the 2 party system and the democrats would be apart of that 2 party system.

    I thought OWS was protesting the lack of job growth and the wealth disparity?

    Which regulations are you referring to and what regulations are Apple trying to avoid?

    They average about 20 deaths/year at their factories because **** blows up from improper ventilation, but there's not really any negative consequence from that as there would be in the States.
    Are you referring to Apple again or to a Chinese company?
    Why does Nike produce out of China and other areas with lax working and environmental regulations? Cause it's cheaper. A boat don't cost **** these days, shipping over water is relatively cheap and the money saved from cutting environmental and labor corners more than makes up for it.
    Is Nike cutting environmental corners? If so, which ones? What labor corners are they cutting? How do they compare with Chinese run factories or companies?

    Of course people would want to work. There's a lot of people, not enough jobs, and no protection. They have to live and will take anything they can get, even if it means their lives. Companies in China had to start printing "please don't kill yourself" pamphlets for its workers. Is that good condition? Just because people want the job doesn't mean that they're being treated well, that there are proper protections for their labor and lives. It just means that the chance to be maimed or exploded is better than starving to death.
    You're making a lot of claims here but with nothing to support them.
