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 graduated from a major U.S. university with a master’s degree.
My thesis included landmark research.
My GPA was 4.0.
I haven’t been able to find a job. At all. Even in food service.
I owe $92,000 in loans.
More than anything, I want to work. I want to contribute.
I want to do what I studied to do — and I want to pay my debts.
No charity — just a chance.
I am the 99%
