It's not really surprising. Once you have rent or a mortgage to pay, all your time and energy will go into that. That's how Capitalism enslaves whole populations.
The Irony here of course is that they are protesting to have more free stuff with which to occupy their empty existence

Some of them might be, but many are seeking a system that allows human beings to be human beings rather than debt slaves to enrich Wall Street. It's not a law of nature that a husband and wife both have to work 12 hours a day to afford a very basic home.

I'd imagine protesting about the very real issues you mention would not be top of the their protest priorities.

Most of the modern left have no idea how fractional reserve banking works, they're mostly interested in protesting about sexual liberation. Real old school left wingers like Tony Benn and Peter Shore opposed the European Union, where as today's 'modern left' seem to worship it.
