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.

My contribution to the occupy wall street movement. I mow yards and garden for a living. I am $27,000 dollars in student loan debt, and I only make about $20,000 a year. I am lucky because I work part time (10 hrs/wk) at the the local college in the greenhouse dept. Someone in the admin dept messed up my paperwork this month and I won’t get paid again until next month. I am lucky I have people who love me and will help feed me and my son this month until corporate america pays me my meager $8/hr sum. I am the 99%! occupywallstreet.org
