The New York Times created an infographic to show what jobs of the top %1 percent. I pulled the info from Hyperallergic, which is one of my favorite online art and culture journals. Of course, info and data are, well, exactly that. Hopefully, it leads you to do a bit of research and investigation. It made me think, I’m not included in this schematic because I do freelance and work completely outside of the structure (i.e., blogging, personal enrichment). Now, imagine, hundreds like me that NEED the analysts, managerial, or office drone occupations to help keep us afloat?
