STFU, 99%

99% of the 99% should probably get off the internet
two posts this week on wearethe99percent demonstrating that “those who can’t, teach” (or go to grad school).

I have high-functioning autism, and I completed college. I also did my job training under a program with my vocational rehabilitation agency in my state of Florida.
But I’m fed up with Corporate America because I cannot find a job. It’s either because there are no positions available or because according to the assessment questions by Unicru/Kronos (Who else puts a stinkin’ personality test in a job application?) I’m unfit to work. I also have over $20,000 in student loan debt.
I recently joined my mother’s business with residual income and hopefully finding people to work with us. But for now, I’m faced with the financial problems.

Look, if you can’t figure out how to fool those personality tests you are probably too stupid to have a job.

I am part of the 99%, my parents are also the 99%. I lost my previous job back in April 2011 and am still unemployed, my parents can barely support me with the retirement money they have and can barely support my two brothers.
I cannot afford high quality private healthcare, I am currently on Medicaid and Social Security which does not support me fully, I attempted to go to college but was forced to drop out due to lack of money and I ended up with a $20,000 loan debt which took me 5 years to pay back and this was community college.
I want free high-quality education, I believe EVERYONE should be able to obtain a Johns Hopkins, Yale, Rutgers, Harvard-level education for free or low-cost, it’s NOT fair that only the 1% can afford to go to Hopkins, Yale, Rutgers, Harvard and the rest of the Ivy league colleges and universities.
I don’t think it’s fair that the 1% can afford quality housing and healthcare.
I don’t think it’s fair that our representatives in the House and Senate can get the BEST healthcare out of all the private and public healthcare that’s currently available, they can obtain experimental treatments AT NO COST while all, if not most, private insurances won’t even cover the cost of experimental treatments and they are covered with this extremely high-quality healthcare when they retire and it’s also available to their families.
I’m 25 now and currently involved with the Occupy Baltimore movement and the sign I’m holding in my picture was a sign I used while protesting with Occupy Baltimore before we got evicted from McKeldin Square. I strongly believe in removing ALL inequalities within society, economics and politics. I am extremely fed up with how our country is run and how shitty the so-called “American Dream” has become. I think if our Founding Fathers would be rolling over in their graves seeing how fucked up our nation has become since the founding of the U.S. and how religion has become a huge part of politics.
Baltimore is one of the cities that have extreme poverty in many areas and 1%ers living in other areas, in fact, where I live in Baltimore City, on just ONE street, EVERY socioeconomic class is ON THIS SINGLE STREET, poor, middle class, upper-middle class and the rich and wealthy lives on or within the vicinity of this single street!!!!!! It’s very sad.


Uh Harvard, Yale, etc. give their students grants instead of making them take out loans. They are cheaper for many working-class families than state colleges. Where do people come up with this shit?

Why not go work for Big Pharma? They probably fund most of those graduate programs anyway

I have a rare condition and there is no cure because research isn’t profitable. There is no access to drugs because insurances and the pharma industry argue about money. I lose :( Not any longer! I am the 99 percent!

Sounds like someone’s been watching http://www.underourskin.com/ and has bought into the conspiracy theory

I’m 26 years old. I’m a journalist, writer and editor. I’m unemployed and live with my parents. I’ve been unemployed since graduating from school 2 1/2 years ago with no debt. I’ve been looking for a job in my field, but have only gotten unpaid internships that don’t lead to a job with the company, and the only jobs I’ve gotten are at places that can’t pay anyone, even the people at the top. I’ve put out high-quality pieces and I’m a self-starter with a deep knowledge of and passion for the subjects I work on. I always have ideas for projects and I welcome teamwork to realize them. All of these things, apparently, are what employers are looking for. I’ve done everything right, and no one will hire me.I’m not looking for fame, glory or fortune. I’m looking for a job. Is that too much to ask? I am the 99%

I graduated from one of the country’s top universities with my Master’s and $150,000 in debt. I wanted to work in non-profit and help make the world a better place. Instead, I now work in business, giving advice to billion dollar companies on how to best push their products and deceive consumers into buying them. I do this because I have a 2 year old daughter who needs to be provided for, and a non-profit salary with an $1100 a month (25% of my income) student loan payment won’t cut it. Within weeks of her birth I started saving for her college education because I never want her to have the burden of student loans. I want her to be able to follow her dreams, like I never got the chance to. However, I will still warn her that when people tell her she can be anything she wants to be, it’s a lie. You can only do what you want in life if you have the money, and none of the debt. I’m sad that I will have to tell her this. I’m sad that her future looks darker than any other generation before. I’m sad the American Dream is dying. 
I AM THE 99%

the 99% say: “working for a nonprofit is the only way to change the world”
