McDonalds Applications Dropped On Occupy Protesters

HUFFINGTON POST - 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).

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

Indeed, the incident isn't the first conflict near the Chicago Board of Trade building since the beginning of the protests. Last month, the same floor's windows had signs reading "WE ARE THE 1%" taped to them, a prelude to photocopies thrown from the same windows reading "WE ARE THE 1% PAYING FOR THIS," Chicagoist reports.

The episode was spoofed on Real Time With Bill Maher, who speculated further such signs might read "Save Our Trumps" and "You Can't Go Home Again -- No, Seriously, You Can't, I Just Foreclosed It."
