AIM says they found few job applicants among "Occupy DC" protesters

After more than a month of protests demanding better employment opportunities and benefits, the Washington, D.C.-based media watchdog group Accuracy in Media decided to offer protesters camping out at “Occupy DC” real jobs.

AIM’s “headhunters” set up a table in the middle of the protest area near the Capital and offered job application forms from a wide variety of employers ranging from the Bank of America to Subway sandwich shops, from Solyndra solar energy to the Disney Company.  

“We were treated to every excuse as to why these jobs aren’t good enough for them,” observes AIM spokesman Logan Churchwell. “We guess middle management opportunities with healthcare and 401k benefits aren’t desirable anymore.”
