    If a guy came in and had OWS participant on his resume, would you hire him? What if he went to jail for the cause? Would you hire him to be among the people who are gonna be expected to help your company thrive and profit? Does his attitude of aligning with OWS say anything about the type of employee you'll be getting?

    If he was qualified for the job, I would gladly hire him. Probably pay him a little extra for his American patriotism.

    If he or she were one of those who quit their job
    or ditched school to be part of this .. Hell no I wouldn't
    hire them.

    To be honest even if they didn't do those things I wouldn't hire them.

    Why would he put OWS participant on his resume?

    And of course I'd hire the individual if they met the qualifications.

    EVERYBODY has things they're passionate about, politically or otherwise. You cannot enjoy life or really even succeed if you just immediately turn away from people who are differently minded than you and only live in your own little bubble of those who agree with you.

    I would question the level of participation and the reasons for doing so. Chances are the explanation would probably make no sense (except "I was there for the free sex"). Then I would determine if he/she is a complete idiot, or just a curious college kid.

    There are a lot of Ron Paul supporters at Occupy Philly. I am not a libertarian, but I respect many of their arguments.

    Of course if the applicant was a complete hottie
    she would be hired on the spot...

    But that goes without saying.
    If she looked like Rachel Maddow...well then.

    It would depend on the job and the applicant's qualifications. Drug/alcohol and a background screening would be part of the pre-hire process. An arrest record might be an impediment, depending on the reason for the arrest.

    I would, just so I could laugh at the pampered useless idiot.
