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’m 26 years old. I’m a journalist, writer and editor. I’m unemployed and live with my parents. I’ve been unemployed since graduating from school 2 1/2 years ago with no debt. I’ve been looking for a job in my field, but have only gotten unpaid internships that don’t lead to a job with the company, and the only jobs I’ve gotten are at places that can’t pay anyone, even the people at the top. I’ve put out high-quality pieces and I’m a self-starter with a deep knowledge of and passion for the subjects I work on. I always have ideas for projects and I welcome teamwork to realize them. All of these things, apparently, are what employers are looking for. I’ve done everything right, and no one will hire me.I’m not looking for fame, glory or fortune. I’m looking for a job. Is that too much to ask? I am the 99%
