We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

My senior year of high school my parents lost our house to foreclosure. after being homeless for a short time Our 5 person household was forced to move into a 2 bedroom apartment. My dad was laid off from work a couple months ago after working for the same company for 17 years, he is a U.S immigrant, but also a USA Veteran, but can’t seem to get disability or unemployment [he has a bad back and arthritis in his knees]. My family is supported by my moms income alone.I’m the first person in my entire family to go to college. I’m a senior now and when I graduate I will be in debt $23,750. I want to be able to help my family, and to be strong for them, but I don’t even think I’ll be able to find a job. I am the 99%
