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 with a BA in Communication that put me 30k in debt. I spent 4 years after college looking for “professional work” while working multiple part-time jobs that would not give me full time hours in order to avoid having to give me benefits (i.e. health insurance & vacation pay). I was lucky enough to earn a Graduate Assistantship that has gotten me back in school but loan collectors still call me and my family seeking to collect on my loans from my time as an undergrad. Should I tell the freshmen I teach that this is what they have to look forward to? I am the 99%
