Who Are the 99%? Story #17
22 Y/O-Seattle, WA.
Struggling to live in Section 8 Housing (L.U.C.K.Y.) with Mother (53+ who has medical bills and has trouble working) and sister (25 who has medical/bank debts).
I have 2 jobs and make JUST enough to pay SOME bills @ the minimum. Our rent and the price of EVERYTHING goes UP while pay stays the same if not goes DOWN or vanishes into unemployment (if you’re lucky enough to receive it!).
Bills never go away, new ones come into play. WE SPEND 2-5X MORE THAN WE MAKE! ONLY TO SURVIVE!!! WTF!
Education/experience/personality/life – USELESS TO THE GOV.
Debt/Taxes/Gov./War/MONEY – Worth Millions suffering and dying all around the country/world.
WE HAVE NO INSURANCE!
WE PAY TAXES!
WE RESPECT THE LAWS!
WE HELP EACH OTHER AND THE COUNTRY’S ECONOMY!
WE ARE GETTING OUR RIGHTS STRIPPED AWAY!
WHERE IS OUR HELP?!
WE SHOULD RUN THE GOVERNMENT TOGETHER!
I AM LESS THAN .01 PERCENT OF WHO WE ARE!
WE ARE THE 99 PERCENT.
