After several years of reading various posts at DU I have come to the belief the active members (maybe 3,000) are either teachers, college students, unemployed, underemployed, on disability, or trying to get disability.
I am not making this up; time and again you read threads of people walking out on jobs, thinking about getting a job, complaining about failing a disability test, mentioning something about the students in their class(es). Those in college usually trie to hide the fact they are college students for some reason. I think it is because they perceive they would be considered more “wordly” if they were old enough to be out of college.
Those over at Daily Kos are the more educated and seem to have employment, but it appears to be mostly government or education.
that’s funny about people walking out of their jobs.
Last week I walked out of class because the teacher was reading the same boring book about some dumb curious monkey.
Unfortunately the teacher called my parents in for a conference with me. :(
