Picture: Stock Traders Mock Occupy Wall Street Protesters "We are the 1%"

| by Michael Allen

The Occupy Wall Street movement spread to Chicago this week, where protesters have gathered outside the Chicago Board of Trade, the world’s oldest options and futures trading center.

Like the protesters in New York, the group gathered to protest income inequality, as the top 1 percent of Americans continue to see their incomes rise and their tax rates fall.

The Chicago traders, confronted by the protesters’ “We are the 99 percent” message, crafted signs in eighth-floor windows that said: “We are the 1%."
