Oct. 9 Bloomberg — “Occupy Wall Streetprotesters are angry over the lack of employment prospects and government actions that are “not relevant to their lives,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said.

“I think they are angry that they don’t have jobs,” Pelosi told ABC News’ “This Week” program, scheduled for broadcast today. “There’s nothing that makes you angrier than not being able to provide for your family or understand what your prospects are for the future.”

Americans’ pessimism about the economy helped send President Barack Obama’s approval rating to 38 percent last week, the lowest of his presidency. The nation’s jobless rate, which has been at 9 percent or higher since April, remained at 9.1 percent last month.
