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’ll be 25  this month.  I have a BACHELOR’S degree yet I cannot get a job in my field.  "No experience" they tell me.  I have a $50,000 education but apparently that’s not enough.  I haven’t paid my school loan in 6 months.  WHY? It didn’t help me out.  I have $8000 in credit card debt.  Not from buying nice things, but from putting gas in my car and food on my table.  I lie to make my job seem more glamorous because I’m ashamed.  Ashamed that all of my prized possessions are on Craigslist (even my car) because I STILL don’t know how I’m going to pay bills or eat next week.
