On top of cold weather and logistical pains, "Occupy" protesters in Chicago last week dealt with an embarrassing stunt. Dozens of photocopied McDonald's job applications were reportedly thrown from the Chicago Board of Trade building and onto Occupy Chicago protestors earlier this week, according to Chicagoist (h/t Mediaite).

Well if that just doesn't prove they want us all as serfs, I don't know what will. IMHO, McD's and the likes with their garbage food should be shut down, and that's my $.02.

No riot gear response to that. I thought litter and sanitation concerns were paramount for many of the police forces involved in protecting the free citizens of this fine country.

I don't see how this would be embarassing for the protesters.

It sure does seem like an embarassing stunt for whomever did it though , and it's a shame they don't find out who it was because they need to be assigned some court ordered community service cleaning up litter.

I agree...you can't really call the stuff McDonalds serves "food" it's like pseudo-food/poison.

We'll see how the ones who dumped that trash on the OWS people feel when they get their own pink slips and the shoe's on the other foot.

Well if they did, there's a long line,

In April, McDonald's announced plans to hire 50,000 new employees in a single day. The fast food giant was subsequently flooded with more than one million applications, a McDonald's spokeswoman told HuffPost in April. As of October, there are officially 13.9 million unemployed people in America today

This is exactly what they are protesting. McJobs are the only jobs left for the majority of the people.

Why wouldn't they get a littering citation or ticket?

1% immune to that too, I see.

I wonder if they would think it was still funny if people started boycotting McDonalds? I don't eat there anyway, but it just might send a message to them...

Mcdonalds, and other fast food places are not all as bad as you hear. I don't mind a big mac once every few months or so.

Exactly... It must suck to have a college degree and mountains of student loan debt, and the only job you can get is flipping burgers and saying "would you like fries with that."

If this is truly the future of the work force in America, then they seriously are going to need to legalize drugs, because everyone is going to need them.
