Board of Trade Offers Job Counseling Advice for Occupy Chicago

Someone at the Chicago Board of Trade issued another message to the Occupy Chicago protesters by blanketing them with these McDonald's job applications. The protesters are understandably offended by both the message and by the hundreds of pieces of new litter around them.

First the CBOT folks posted "We are the 1%" in their eighth floor windows a few weeks ago. This is the second time they tossed flyers down from their ivory tower, too. They tossed down “We Are the 1% Paying For This" on Oct. 21. They've perhaps moved the war to a second front by sending email spam to protesters.

In the words of Stephanie Tanner, "How rude!"
