The Great Bush Crash of 2008 - resulted in a massive downgrade of the U.S. labor force. According to a new study out of Rutgers - only 7% of the millions and millions of Americans who lost their jobs during this second Republican Great Depression - have found a new job on par or better with the salary they were making before the 2008.
The vast majority of Americans say they are now living diminished lifestyles - with some saying they've taken drastic pay cuts that they fear will be permanent. Meanwhile - it took less that two years for Wall Street to return to the same profit levels as before the crash.
Still wondering why there's a need for the Occupy Wall Street Movement? It's because the 1% got bailed out - and the 99% got sold out.
