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 want to get my M.S. in Counseling.  I am being forced to turn down acceptance into my dream school because I make $11/hr helping people who are poor (not just low-income like me), barely got an financial aid and simply cannot afford to go $100K in debt.  Instead, I hope to “only” take out $50K to go to a state school.  I have no savings because my paycheck just barely covers rent, health insurance, and groceries.  In that respect, I am one of the lucky ones.  I am the 99%.
