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 an a 28 year old married father of 2.  My wife works 2nd shift and I work 1st to save on child care.  I work 60-70 hours a week, 7 DAYS A WEEK!  Even with the overtime, I cannot afford health or dental insurance (It would cost me 60 dollars a week for myself, 90 a week to cover my children). My wife and children have insurance through her employer.  I have not had a day off or seen my wife in a month and a half (Just found out today, probably another 3 weeks before I might get a day off for Thanksgiving).  But we get our bills paid.  We are lucky. My teeth are rotting out.  I have not seen a doctor in 4 years. WE ARE THE 99%.  
P.S.  We do not live beyond our means. My car is 13 years old, and my wifes is 12.  We live in a 2 bedroom trailer.  Our kids dont starve.  Like I said, we are lucky.
