occupy wall street

Last week we ran a poll to see what our readers thought of the Occupy Wall Street movement. The poll saw over 250 votes come in and the results are posted below.

It seems like there is a pretty even split with 38% agreeing with the movement and 33% disagreeing with it. The movement has gained followers from across the globe and continues to stand strong months after it began. While their message of corporate greed and corruption directly impacts young people entering today’s business world they have also been criticized for not having enough clear goals on how to change things.

One thing that can be pointed out is the poll does not look at if someone disagrees with the idea of the movement or disagrees with how this particular movement is doing things and addressing the problem.

What are your thoughts on the results? Why do you think the numbers came out this way?

38% I agree with the movement

33% I disagree with the movement

19% I need to learn more

10% I don’t care about the movement
