UPDATED: Apparently, thanks to the good souls at WSO, now we can confirm that this former OWS'er has something in common with Shia LeBeouf. If you recall, John Thomas Financial got quite a stir going when it was revealed that Shia had shadowed a couple of these guys, and then began pumping one of their holdings (InterOil) in the media leading up to Wall Street 2. Now they're playing the press (and myself I guess) to get some attention as they now have an OWS'er covering the healthcare industry. Fittingly, I've changed the title to better fit what JTM is. Plus it's even more hilarious that way.

Former Occupy Wall Street Activist now has job as an ER analyst. She's a PhD in biomedical science, so naturally they have her reviewing healthcare companies.

Oh yeah, she looks like she's really suffering there. Dumb bitch. Any of them would take the money and forget about the "movement" without looking back.

I love how this guy thinks he's the face of Wall Street. Instead of acting like he's some banker-ambassador, he should take his $3 million of inception-to-date deal volume and go back to his condo in Jersey.

What is so bad about living in NJ?

PS: Anyone wanna buy some Lean Cuisine coupons? I can hook you up. I got a bunch of $1 off 2 for 40 cents each (doubles at ShopRite Metro Plaza). Also, Yellowtail coupons for $1 off a 1.5L bottle- 50 cents each. I make about $500/day selling these outside the ShopRite, but I'm thinking about syndicating to Manhattan.

You New Yorkers are never going to retire if you don't focus on saving.

I live in NJ haha. I was just saying he's trying too hard. He's running a small shady shop and he talks like he's Dimon or Blankfein. I don't want him to represent Wall Street and organize these "pride" rallies, he's shit.

Your Lean Cuisine scheme is ridiculous.

Consumer arbitrage, baby! Everyone wins!

1.) Make ShopSmart think you have 10,000 people living in your apartment.
2.) Get out an industrial strength cutting board.
3.) Chop 10,000 campbell's soup coupons, 10,000 lean cuisine, 10,000 healthy choice, 2000 crest (not everybody brushes- this is the Northeast- one step from the UK, after all).
4.) Start selling them around the corner from the Shop Rite. I make friends with the dealer and the bums by giving them free coupons and I wear a small "Gray-market coupons" pin so the grandmas and soccer moms know I'm safe to deal with.
5.) My coupon bag also functions as a high temperature battery-powered kiln. In case the postmaster or the marketing firms' PIs ever stop by to ask any questions about why I'm receiving so many ShopSmarts every week, I'm just carrying a kiln with a bunch of dust in it. Botched art project. Please keep delivering my pallets of coupons.
6.) Bums help me market the stuff in front of the shop-rite, and sometimes inside. "Psst, hey lady, want some coupons? Did you hear about the guy selling gray market coupons out back?"

Holy shit the "Chief Economist" of that firm is Mike Norman...he is a total whack job. He was on the wrong end of the "Peter Schiff was Right" videos and now seems to be obsessed in slandering Schiff. Check it:

Isn't that bald guy the asshole from Wall Street 2 (aka the greatest movie of all time)?

Did you watch the video? The CEO sounds like someone from the Jersey Shore (or the Persian equivalent)- he obviously doen't know the Constitution very well as he misquoted it too. Not to mention I was waiting for him to declare war on Sparta

The starting salary as a junior analyst is near minimum wage, but in time, she can earn a cool six figures, assured Kaufman. Postert's...already studying for her exams to be a certified financial analyst. "I want to get a perfect score," she said. CEO Thomas Belesis said he believes Postert will be a great asset. "She was ranting about Wall Street, and now she's working on Wall Street. Banks are not so bad. I hope we have opened her eyes," he said. Life has definitely changed for the former Occupier. She's in the office by 8 a.m., and she still has to get used to Kaufman's rallying cry of "Go! Go! Go!" blaring over the speakers in the morning.

Really, you guys need to warn me before I look at shit like this at work. I have to disguise my hysterical laughing as a bad coughing attack. It's not very believable.

Also, they have a youtube channel with all of the CEO's TV appearances. How can anyone take him seriously? No wonder he only appears on FBN.

From the wikipedia article: In 2009, he was presented with the Bronx GOP "Man of the Year" award by Rudolph Giuliani, who commented on his rise "from humble beginnings to become a great success on Wall Street" and his role in providing jobs to young people on Wall Street.
