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.

I am a 27 year old with a bachelor degree. I ran out of my student loans while trying to find a job. I am “living” with my mother again to get back on my feet.  So far, the best I can do is a part time retail job paying $8 an hour.  
I am hearing impaired with cochlear implant. My cochlear implant warranty expired.  I do not have the money to renew it.  How can I work at my new minimum wage job when my implant is broken?  I need it to HEAR.

I am the 99%.
(and I owe so much money)
