When I was laid off, I was assured it was due to the Wall Street-created recession, not due to my performance. Now, I struggle to pay my student loans and health insurance, while the criminal bankers and traders who ruined our lives are busy laughing and collecting their bonuses.
I was valedictorian.
I have a law degree from a top-tier school.
I have a pre-existing health condition.
I have $150,000+ in student loans.
I HAD a great job that I lost due to Wall Streetís greed and the resulting financial collapse.
I will soon lose my house.
I can barely afford my medications.
There will be no hope for American unless we drastically reform Wall Street and jail those responsible.
I am the 99%.
Occupy Wall Street.
No justice, no peace.† Keep fighting, 99%.
