We’ve been hearing about the “Occupying Wall Street” protests for a few weeks now.

Are you a part of the 99%?  If so, which part are you?

In case you’re still not caught up on the situation here’s the Wikipedia definition of what Occupying Wall Street is all about:

Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing series of demonstrations in New York City based in Zuccotti Park in the Wall Street financial district.

The participants’ slogan “We are the 99%”refers to the difference in wealth between the top 1% and the other citizens of the United States. They are mainly protesting social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the power and influence of corporations, particularly from the financial service sector, and of lobbyists, over government.

According to the protesters’ unofficial website, “Occupy Wall Street” is

a leaderless movement of people from many different backgrounds. “The one thing we all have in common is that we are the 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.”

To actually be Confusing?  Probably.  How can 99% of the population all be the 99%?  Well, here’s a helpful tool to calculate what part of the 99% you actually are.  Follow THIS LINK from the Wall Street Journal for a calculator to show where your income stands on the wide range of the 99%.
