Those who dismiss the Wall Street protests as a gathering of young, useless members of the lost generation may want to have a look at these photos. Over 700 pilots from United and Continental Airlines demonstrated in front of Wall Street Tuesday. The pilots are protesting the lack of movement on collective bargaining agreement negotiations from the United/Continental merger, which reaches its one-year anniversary soon.
There may be varying demands amongst the protest’s constituencies, but that variety does not diminish the importance of each grievance.
