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 26 years old.
I live with my parents. I have a BS in Aeronautical Engineering.
I have over $30K in student loans. ($400/mo.)
I make $11/hr at my current job.
I have friends who got jobs making:
NUCLEAR SUBMARINES
GUIDED MISSILES
UNMANNED COMBAT AERIAL VEHICLES
WEAPONS SYSTEMS
MILITARY SOFTWARE/HARDWARE
I have a question:
If I refuse to work for a defense contractor as an engineer, where can I get a job that doesn’t involve KILLING PEOPLE?
I realise I am fortunate enough to have a job, a home, medical coverage, food, a car, and other things.
Many aren’t.
I also realise that the reason my friends and I are is the same reason many aren’t.
I am the 99%
against the CORPORATE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.

    Interesting perspective. There are plenty of poor people in the world, but giving them jobs doesn’t cure all their ills,...
