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 was raised by a single parent who always made just enough to pay the bills and help me in college. She has a real estate brokers license. Last year she was evicted and now lives with my older sister. 
I went to two top Universities and paid for it all with student loans. I made the sacrifice because I was told that with an education your life will be better. I graduated May this with year with my Masters, yet I am still unemployed. My student loan repayment begins in December but I don’t know how I will afford them. All I have left are my dreams. I am the 99 percent.
