Which Part of the 99% Are You?

Advertiser Disclosure Comments 1 Comment

For over a month now, protesters have been marching around Wall Street shouting a now-familiar chant: “We Are The 99 Percent!”

Okay, you say, but exactly what percent am I? The Wall Street Journal just posted this neato-burrito tool to help you find out. Simply type in how much money you make in a year, and the tool automatically shows where your income ranks in comparison to all other Americans. For extra fun, type in your income from former jobs. Anything below about $506,000 means you are part of the 99 percent.

    I like the tool, it adds perspective. I wrote a 50,000 foot view of occupy wall street on http://www.seeitmarket.com focusing on changes in social mood and the common thread that people are losing trust. The site’s articles offer different perspectives on the subject. Thanks.
