Today’s Occupy Wall Street protests in Portland, Oregon shut down two terminals at the city’s port, which led workers to miss a day of work. But, is this benefiting the 99 percent or the one percent?
Kari Koch, part of Occupy Portland, joined Your World to explain the group’s position – that the wealth being created at these ports is not going into the 99 percent’s checking accounts. “We are disrupting the one percent and their capacity to make money today,” she said.
Neil educated the simpleton, saying that all of the 23 shippers that were affected by their actions today largely have nothing to do with the brokerage firms Portland targeted by shutting down the terminals.
