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 38 years old. It will take me almost 30 years to pay off my student loans (in 2023). I am self-employed and I am used to no benefits or paid days off. I have insurance through my husband — I am lucky — but I’m too afraid to start a family. I know what it’s like to be poor and don’t want my child to live like that, too. I am the 99 percent. occupywallst.org.
