Ice cream entrepreneurs Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have made it big in business but are standing side-by-side with the Occupy Wall Street movement, they said at a Dec. 12 Newsmaker.
“I have seen people who were committed, thoughtful, dedicated, people, people who played by the rules, who lost jobs, lost everything," Greenfield, co-founder with Cohen of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., said of the Occupy participants. "They had nothing to show for it except huge debt. We are operating in a system that is not working for people. The people at the top get all the opportunities.”
