My posts were always like that.
And will always be.
Those were my PERSONAL experiences, observations and opinions to begin with.
I occupy a small space in the Philippine Wall Street.
Yes, Im working in Ayala Street in Makati, the Philippine counterpart of Wall Street.
Where the millionaire corporate jet owners prestigious office towers are located.
who, by the way, DON'T pay their fair share of tax (which they patently do)
Working in the country's financial district made me aware of the present situation about the world's economy.
Noticing the huge difference between poor and rich,
the over-concentration of wealth around Wall Street
And its outsized influence in politics
Which put big bosses and politicians live in luxury
For just working 2 hours per day, 3 days a week
While we, the middle class
Are working 8-10 hours per day 5-6 days a week
who pay taxes religiously and accurately
Still live in chaos and uncertainty.
The former Godfather's Pizza CEO said, "Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks, if you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself. It is not someone's fault if they succeeded; it is someone's fault if they failed" ( from here )
I work in a multinational company,
with above average paychecks.
I belong to the poor.
But I never give up hope
that a better world is possible
Through this post I am joining a modern day hippie movement, they say.
the protest demanding a stop on state and federal tax breaks for the rich,
An end to budget cuts and for jobs to be restored.
Lets join hands in Occupying the Wall Street of the world.
