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 am 14 years old.
my family has always been poor, but it just keeps getting worse. I can’t help but feel like a burden. I am too young to get an actual job, but i am babysitting on the weekends to pay the mortgage. Not to mention high school and the stress of being an openly pan-cis gendered girl with a girlfriend. I’m starting to loose my hair from the stress. We used my college fun to pay debt that is still not gone. It makes me wonder if i can ever go to college?
