    Occupy Wall Street is made up of many different groups, most with similar ideas but some with radical view points that skew their more important messages. "We are the 99%" is their slogan. Occupy fights for income equality, which is literally a growing problem in the US. The top 20% wealthiest Americans hold 84% of our countries total wealth. There are more and more people unable to find work, being evicted from their homes, and having to pick between groceries or medications. 99% of us are feeling the crunch of the economy because most of our money is caught up in a few far-too-powerful hands.
