Who Are the 99 Percent? Story #28
I am a 30-year-old mother of a 6 month old. I have no health insurance.† I live on food stamps and I live with my boyfriend who is a police officer and makes 30K a year.† He is also in the National Guard and is currently deployed.† We only have enough money to pay bills and our mortgage.
We rely on friendsí hand me down clothes for our daughter.† I lost my bar-tending job when I got pregnant.† I canít sue because we donít have the money.† I have applied for 200+ jobs with not one interview.† I havenít seen a ďregularĒ doctor or dentist since I was 14.† We also share a 26-year-old car that is a money pit.
We are the 99%.
