I guess socialism does pay after all...
The Infest Wall Street bunch is definitely a grass roots movement.

The Working Families Party is a subsidiary of SEIU.

*Attention Right Wing conspiracy theorists* This is an ad for our regular field representative position. We support the protesters but we don't have the money to pay them!
