The 1 Percent -- what jerks!
Poverty Pickets Get Paper-Bag Dousing on Madison Avenue,” read the headline. The article described more than 300 people picketing the Office of Economic Opportunity, between East 40th and 41st Streets, the day before, chanting, “O-E-O, we’ve got the poverty, where’s the dough?” Executives upstairs at Young & Rubicam, half a block from the building, shouted at the protesters, and hung up signs saying “If you want money, get yourself a job.”
And then: “A container of water was pitched out of one of the windows of the building, splashing two spectators,” the article said. “Later, two demonstrators were hit by water-filled paper bags thrown from the building.”
