People were telling me get a job as I -- OK I will.
And asked me if I would consider job on Wall Street -- that yes you like the job I do I really like it.
I think we got thousands of emails on this woman she's back a few months later the occupier from Wall Street employees set to occupy a new business for home.
-- joins us right now -- -- -- -- congratulations thanks trapping me on.
Why are you off on your own now.
Like I kind of started off on times I'm not on my own and just following my own path.
So -- we were hired by a Wall Street firm and don't -- since this is known and John Thomas financial were.
Didn't stick around -- very -- no I did not despite months but I was really -- for the opportunity an idea.
It was either work for them and eager to check it out now.
A lot of your fellow occupiers -- -- the time this is a lot of them knew that that was the rap against some or you have to protest about the lack of jobs but you're not signing up.
To try to apply for him.
If they weren't a little bit suspicious there you know it questioned me -- aren't really -- like they say it's that are out there Jason I said no that I just needed.
A job just like everyone else and you know this this.
You know past few months I've continued to.
To work for them and to volunteer in the weekend serving food and don't that he is still believe in their cause most of what they say I still really believe what is their -- I'm not a spokesperson I invited by Wall Street.
But they've basically think that the rules are unfair and our society right now that the rules -- be better for the people that don't have as much money.
And that the top 1% have too much in the control over -- the financial.
Earnings of our society that not enough for the money it's getting to the lower costs and you're on your way to tough it's.
You'll see that even if I don't make a lot of money out of my latest venture instant.
I'll still be doing what I like to do.
What I really enjoy doing is by medical research at activism.
And so while I was -- -- Thomas I got the idea for a company that I can.
You know create and that -- -- medical research and activism.
A statement you couldn't -- that firm fast enough of it.
They're fine that's had a great okay I likely you know you summed up a couple of clear goals of the occupiers.
Better than I've.
Heard any of them say on this version.
Because they're all over the map and I I think -- pitching university and it -- when he grounds to complain.
But they're all over the -- And everyone has -- on to their cause unions abroad and analysts and everything else so it's it's it's crazy diluted.
Do you think that's right.
That is correct it's you know that you advise you know he's innocent there's no one simple message from Occupy Wall Street I don't think there should be one simple message.
But you know when asked to summarize what I feel the most important messages that's -- I -- I talked to some releases the events and argue and -- Wall Street is the tobacco Brothers were there other Worcester is they actually set up tables and -- -- -- -- -- applied for jobs.
The folks who came to apply for the jobs -- the occupies with the exception of -- But people were just -- different but we're not part of that movement so their view was that a lot of the occupiers.
We're not there to bitch about a lack of jobs or they would have been applying for them they were there just a bitch and you think that.
Well I think there's probably an element of truth to that that there are some people who were there who.
Just sort of -- to complain but on the other hand I think that.
-- occupy wall streeters they had an element -- what they were doing -- I do think that the rules in this country are not really set up fairly.
And I do think that you know protesting is a way to have moves towards a more fair society so -- and rich should pay more taxes.
That I definitely think the rich to pay more taxes and cuts and I hope to be one of -- And you might be there and what about spending the additional manual repudiated in France and elsewhere that austerity.
Is not the way ago.
Right because austerity means.
Basically take and getting less -- last to the lower classes if you give up or person on top they spend their whole paycheck.
Every week they spend now the whole paycheck so basically you know that is the way and I think that.
We should run -- society that focus on the or focus on making sure that you know.
Everybody has good job in that employment opportunities.
Are Tracy thank you very much -- -- again.
You're education was -- I have a Ph.D.
and by medical science with a specialized station in pharmacology.
