What is the Occupy Movement Objective?

The Occupy movement is currently (10/16/2011) unorganized with no specific leader to look to. The people dont have any kind of mission or demands. They currently think doing this well help change the world economic status and make a better place for everyone. Many older individuals are there to help their children for the future.

The Occupy movement is basically attempting to bring jobs back to the people. Most jobs are disappearing and many cannot make enough money to live off of even if they do work. The movement is focused on politics and the fact that only a minor amount of people have the most amount of money. It is fed off corporate greed, a failure in the government to support its people, and the rapid increase of how much it costs to actually live off of.

What are the Demographics of Occupy?

Most of the people are jobless but many have part-time and full-time jobs but don't make enough money to support themselves or their families. Everyone is represented by someone actively protesting. Male, female, part time, full time, ages 18-82 were reported by WHDH to be present. Looking at the pictures also disabled Americans are represented by this movement. While the movement is bigger with college students who say they were filled with hopes of finding work after college and confronted with nothing but debt and poverty.
