Occupy protest about recognizing hard work

Occupy Victoria, Occupy Wall Street is about the everyday workers

Re: Nothing wrong with rewarding hard workers (Letters, Oct. 21)

That is what this protest is all about – people who work hard fixing our roads, delivering our mail, working for Air Canada and don’t forget wage earners in the service industry, who also help keep this country running.

When I started out I was able to buy my first home shortly after reaching 30. That cost me $4,500. But as I understand it, today’s young couples face prices like a half million, and evidently both must work, even while bringing up children!

How are we going to change the system? Our politicians need to find some balance between socialism and capitalism.

Good luck with that.
