The Great Bush Crash of 2008 – resulted in a massive downgrade of the U.S. labor force.  According to a new study out of Rutgers – only 7% of the millions and millions of Americans who lost their jobs during this second Republican Great Depression – have found a new job on par or better with the salary they were making before the 2008. 

The vast majority of Americans say they are now living diminished lifestyles – with some saying they’ve taken drastic pay cuts that they fear will be permanent.  Meanwhile – it took less that two years for Wall Street to return to the same profit levels as before the crash. 

Still wondering why there’s a need for the Occupy Wall Street Movement?  It’s because the 1% got bailed out – and the 99% got sold out.
