Marathon Pundit: Video: OccupyChicago protester is a paid volunteer

Friend and fellow Chicago blogger Marathon Pundit interviews one of the #OccupyChicago prostestors.
Meet Paul, an admitted Occupy Chicago paid protester. When I ask him if he's looking for a full-time gig, He replies, "It is a full-time gig." OccupyChi is, he means. And he's getting paid, or at least accepting donations from "people that like me--benefactors." He judges the worth of his volunteering at $22-an-hour. "And I get overtime too."

Update: Paul walks it back a bit today.
