^ "If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence." -- Bertrand Russell
I've found that Bertrand Russell was optimistic. People will often refuse to believe things that don't fit into their preconceived notions even when the evidence is overwhelming.
Anyway, the union members protesting at the Occupy events presumably have jobs.
