Tabacco Brothers Host 'Occupy a Desk' Jobs Fair at Zuccotti Park, Occupiers Pelt Them With Birdseed

"If Mayor Bloomberg wants a clue on how to clear the park, they should hold a job fair there every day."

You may recall the Tabacco brothers -- two Manhattan small business owners -- who decided to bring a jobs fair to Occupy Wall Street base-camp at Zuccotti Park. Dubbed the "Occupy a Desk Jobs Fest," Derek and John Tabacco signed up several local companies with job openings to participate.

Instead of being met with gratitude and and a stack of resumes, however, the Occupiers -- many of whom claim that they have had trouble finding a job -- decided to protest the jobs fest, claiming the Tabaccos were hosting the employment fair simply for publicity.

In fact, so "ornery" were the protesters, that one Tabacco brother told Fox News' Neil Cavuto that Occupiers pelted their feet with birdseed in an effort to bring swarms of pigeons to their booth.

John Tabacco started the segment by saying, "when we went out there and did our first protest and asked people to ‘Occupy a Desk’ or get a job, they were screaming at us, I can’t get a job."

"Where can I get a job? So we thought, hey, if they cannot find jobs, they don’t have time to go out and interview because they are sleeping in a park, let’s get some job opportunities and bring them down to the park. And to be honest with you, I think if Mayor Bloomberg wants a clue on how to clear the park, they should hold a job fair there every day..."
