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’ve been living in the US for 30 years, working in a restaurant all the entire time.  Every day I work 13 hours, leading to my bad health now. After 9/11, I started getting respiratory problems. My wife used to work in the garment factories, but because there wasn’t business, she got laid off. Rent increases yearly, and we have 2 kids. Now we don’t have work, so life is very difficult. We are a part of the 99%.
