Tomorrow grassroots activists say students and young professionals plan to converge on the Occupy DC site in downtown Washington armed with job applications, college enrollment forms and military recruitment brochures.



They also will hold a a resume workshop and job search advice.




The group say they they represent the sentiment of students and young professionals in the Washington, D.C. area. Many of them share the same frustration as the protesters but don’t like the negative OWS message.



Buchhop says the message is not to continue to sit in tents and hold negative rallies. Instead they can empower themselves to do positive things for themselves and their community.


Buchop calls his message the Steve Jobs message: anyone can do anything if they are inspired and work hard at it.




The group has a Facebook site, Employ the 99%.

They plan to appear at McPherson Square in downtown Washington at 12 Noon on Thursday, October 20 and remain there until 3 pm.

Well, it's a good thing that there's a job out there for each applicant, an affordable college degree for everyone, and a moral and just military to join.

Military recruitment brochures? Is that some kind of a joke.

In debt from college loans and you cannot find work? Don't worry! Just pick up a gun and kill people, and get paid for doing it!
