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 56 yr. old mother of 6 with 2 school age children. I make $18 hr., but only get 25-27 hrs. of work per week. I gate NO health insurance. My rent is $1,000 mon. plus utilities. Thank God my children get free lunches at school, because they do not eat breakfast and suppertime is scarce. I drive a car with 192,xxx mi on it; when it does die I will take 3 buses and it will take 2 hours to get to work. If I were to lose my job due to a health crisis, we would be homeless.  
WE are the 99%!!!!
