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 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%.
