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  25 years old, I have degrees in Environmental Studies & History. I could not have gone to school without taking loans. I now have $75,000 from a state university. I pay what I  can, but it is not enough. They call me everyday but I have nothing new to say. It has been almost four years since I graduated. I have had 17 different jobs, and three unpaid internships in that time. I jump from job to job looking for better pay, better hours, and experience in hope it will lead to a full-time career with benefits……I do not see it coming soon. The psychological weight is crushing and defeating at times, but I know it could always be worse.  I know there are people everywhere that are worse off than me, but we are all in this together. So as I start another work week at two jobs, without a day off, without health insurance, without a living wage….you are all in my thoughts.
