Am I the 99%
I’ve always thought of myself as one of a kind, but I am over there reading the tales of woe and I see some parallels. I am doing contract work right now which is far from a dream situation, and I have had my share of problems. Here is the difference though, I lived with my bad choices and pushed through. I also made reasonable choices, I didn’t take out $140,000 in student loans to get a degree in a filed that pays $20,000 / year, I didn’t go out and have 4 kids with no job and I don’t spend every last dime of my check every week. There are people who have legitimate complaints, but no system is 100% for everybody and if you have a rare medical condition that keeps you from working or something of that nature those need to be addressed individually, but that means you are not part of the 99%.
