Thirteen percent of Occupy Wall Street survey respondents earn over $75,000 annually, and nearly 2% bring in more than $150,000.

Sean Captain at Fast Company notes that while images from Occupy Wall Street depict numerous youthful faces, a recent study from the Baruch College School of Public Affairs based on a survey of 1,619 visitors to the occupywallst.org site shows a bit more diversity.

“Tax the rich!” could hit close to home. About 15 percent earn between $50,000 and $80,000 annually (pretty good anywhere except in Manhattan). Thirteen percent earn over $75,000 annually, and nearly two percent bring in more than $150,000.
