It really depends on the type of job you've got.  Right now I have a cushy office job where I can work on OWS stuff whenever I don't have any actual work (which is most of the time).  Last year at this time I was a cook, where there was no such thing as "downtime" and moreover I wasn't using an internet-enabled device to make burritos.

I'd second leaving pamphlets and other materials in the breakroom, bathroom, etc., though.  Also, if you have any co-workers you actually respect, and you trust to not report it to the boss, talk to them about OWS.

Good luck,

Jon

I work full-time as well, I've found that a few emails and phone calls when the boss isn't looking go a really long way!

Best of luck,

I'm still in university so I don't know how the day to day works but maybe you could create a pamphlet to leave in the break room or something.

So, having a (really crappy) job makes it difficult to be directly
active in things for this movement. This is probably a terrible place
to discuss fixing that, but considering that I can't realistically
make it to any meetings, there's not much choice, is there?

I don't know how much this has come up here before, but I would like
some suggestions about what sorts of things would be good to pull off
at work to help things out or show support, preferably without
directly getting fired in the process. (Will the boss come up with an
excuse anyway? Maybe!) I'm thinking discreetly leaving penned "OWS" in
non-obvious places would at least show supportive presence... and
perhaps an outline for ways to make a mockery of your situation should
that support end up provoking retaliation.

I dunno, something like that.
