“Occupy Wall Street”, a protest group against income inequality, corporate greed, high unemployment, corruption, and other things, has been slowly stretching across the nation and not only catching the interest of more local New Yorkers, but has now expanded to people in Boston, Hartford and Seattle.
This past weekend, dozens marched from Zuccotti Park to Foley Square, located close to city hall. These protests have started to catch the interest of the media and other well known sources in the nation. As this protest is gaining speed, it is also seeing a surprising amount of social media recognition through Twitter, more specifically, the group Occupy Boston. It is already reaching to the attention of all college students across the city, as well as nurses.
As of recently, this protest has also started to catch the attention of many unions in New York City such as: Amalgamated Transit Union, consisting of near 20,000 members; Transport Workers Union Local and United Federation of Teachers. All of them stating that they are fed up with corporate greed and employment inequality.
