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 a 20 year old working 35+ hrs a week and live from paycheck to paycheck with my mother. I haven’t lived in a permanent residence for the last 7 years and my mom finally got a job last year from almost 3 years unemployment. I have anxiety issues that keep me from furthering myself in school, the constant worry if I don’t work enough to pay for rent. I am afraid I will have to quit school and never finish. I want to be the first in my family to get a degree, my mom had to quit college three times and regrets it. We work to keep a roof over our heads and are barely making it.
