Today’s the fifth anniversary of the financial collapse and the second anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Not much has changed since then … for the poor at least. The rich are doing better than ever, and that’s all DC cares about.
But the organizing that went on during Occupy lives on, particularly in the ongoing push for increasing the minimum wage in fast-food and retail jobs. Whether they’re successful remains to be seen, but as the gap between the haves and have-nots continues to widen, there will be more despair for the next five years of this so-called “recovery.”
