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.

Photo with 23 notes

21 years old. College grad, in grad school.
Piled in debt, topping well over $40,000 with no way out.
With no job and healthy insurance my American dream is not insight.
I don’t know if I will ever have my dream job to be an educator with all the budget cuts.
So scared I’ll end up poor I don’t know if I’ll be that mother I would like to be someday.
I live at home with my Mom who support me. She works but only makes enough for rent and food, and gas money for the week for a car we share.
Luckily we rent from a private owner, because we have been short on rent for the past year.
I haven’t had a job in going on three years. My debt allows me to go to school, but, what happens after I graduate and all the jobs are still everywhere else by America.
21 years old and I am the 99%. We are the 99%.
