Wall Street Worker to OCCUPY: We'll take YOUR jobs

Original pic here
I have no idea if this is real or not.  I got it from a tweet from my good friend @Jenevalynn forwarded to me from @AdamsBaldwin:
It opens:
We are Wall Street.  It's our job to make money.  ...I didn't hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone's 401K doubled every 3 years.  Just lie gambling, its not a problem until you lose.
Then the gauntlet is laid:
Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you're only going to hurt yourselves.  What's going to happen when we can't find jobs on the Street anymore?  Guess what: We're going to take yours.  We get up at 5am & work til 10pm or later.  We're used to not getting up to pee when we have a position.  We don't take an hour or more for a lunch break.  We don't demand a union.  We don't retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we'll eat that.
It’s kind of like the “I’m mad as hell as I’m not going to take it anymore!” They specifically seem to want to target teachers which I suppose are a huge contingent of the unions participating in Occupy Wall Street:
Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping?  We're going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and while just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America.  Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and a half.  I'll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.
The point is made the money for their jobs comes from the money Wall Street wealthy spend:
No more free rides on our backs.  we're going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways.  Our money was your money.  You spent it.  When our money dries up, so does yours.
It closes address the threats by Obama and the DNC spokespeople who seem to want to take away their jobs:'s really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom.  We aren't dinosaurs.  We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive.  The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply...will he?  and will they?
Again, I have no idea if it is a real letter.  But many of the points are very true.  View the whole letter here.
