Capitalism at Work: Website Sells Occupy Wall Street Products
CafePress.com, a website that, in their own words, is "where the world turns for unique products that express what people love most," has a large section of Occupy Wall Street goods for sale. For example, they offer 371 Occupy Wall Street T-shirt designs, 238 tank top designs, and 155 hat designs. If you're feeling preppy, you can even purchase an "Eat the Rich" polo for $20. There is no mention of any affiliation with the movement on CafePress' website, and considering the Occupy Wall Street site says they are "currently low on food," we doubt they're seeing any of the profits from $16 "We are the 99%" baby bodysuits.
CafePress specializes in pumping out relevant designs--they estimate they make 160,000 new ones every week. Now that the Occupy Wall Street movement is so hot, naturally they added hoodies and boxer shorts bemoaning corporate greed next to their "duh...Winning!" T-Shirts.
We've contacted both CafePress and Occupy Wall Street for comment. Until they respond, we'll just wait for our Occupy Wall Street iPad case to ship.
