I am married with 3 children. We cannot afford daycare so I stay home with them. I cannot afford to go to college so I work part-time on nights and weekends when my husband is home from work. We rarely see each other.
My husband is college educated and works 70+ hours a week at a salaried job for a Fortune 500 company. His paycheck is cut more than half because of taxes and the cost of health insurance.
We have had to cut back - we no longer have cell phones and our second car was reposessed - but we still struggle to pay for groceries and gas. We do not qualify for food stamps because we make “too much.”
We are over $50,000 in debt from college loans and medical bills. I am fearful for the future. We are just barely holding on.
We are the 99%.
