Increasing Occupy’s Appeal

click for comic

This strip was inspired by a trip to a local dive bar where a chatty and inebriated construction worker was slagging Occupy Boston. Although he agreed with their grievances, he suggested they change things from the inside, by becoming CEOs, rather than making a mess of the city and traffic. His perception of the movement as a bunch of college-educated do-nothings is held by a lot of working class people, despite union support. I’m a fancy-pants elitist, so solutions to this inclusion problem aren’t exactly my strong suit.

    I happen to be a college-educated construction worker and there are far too many red-neck attitudes in the trades. I used to think that you could change things from within, but once you get inside the chances of it changing you are far greater, keep going occupiers!
