Some On Wall Street Sympathize With Protesters | CBS reports that “many of those who work on Wall Street say they don’t take the protests personally” and “some even sympathize.” “It’s really incredible to me, the passion and conviction these people have,” said Lou Crossin, who works for a company that sells corporate governance research to large investors. “I don’t think these are violent people. They’re just standing up for their beliefs.”
CNN also reports that Wall Street’s workers “truly empathize and understand” Occupy Wall Street’s frustrations because they too are are feeling the effects. ”They’re equally frustrated as the folks out there on the park are right now” reporter Alison Kosik said.
