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.

Post with 25 notes

I am a 56-year-old woman. I worked for Lockheed Martin for 35 years. I was laid-off just 3.5 years short from being able to collect a full pension. For each year before I am 59.5 years old my pension drops 5%, so if I put in for my retirement benefits now and draw my pension I would loose 15.5% of my pension. I worked 35 years, at the same time I went to college, graduated, and earned my bachelor’s degree. For what?! I now have to try and find a job at age 56.
