Harrison Schultz, a reported organizer of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests, appeared on MSNBC with host Al Sharpton Monday to discuss hippies' ongoing battle against "corporate greed," a.k.a. American capitalism. As a self-proclaimed "professional sociologist," Schultz tells Sharpton that the anti-capitalist demonstrations are "the beginning of a revolution in this country."
That sounds like a definitive job title which obviously sparked MSNBC's fancy, so what exactly does Schultz do for a living? Judging by his own Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, he's a student working on a PhD in sociology at NY's New School, not a "professional sociologist."
Ironically enough, Schultz also reportedly works as a "business intellegence [sic] analyst" for Atrinsic, a corporate media and marketing firm, although he's not listed in the company's employee directory. Among his other temp jobs, he's also worked for Bank of America and a number of investment bankers.
I wonder how many of the protesters on Wall Street realize they have a corporate shill in their midst.
