Julianne Wilke Social Problems TR 11:00-12:30pm 1. The social problem that occupy presents us with is that it has divided up the country because the “1 percent” or the “99 percent” of the different amount of taxes people want to be charged depending the economic background. 2. The reason the OWS seems to get ignited is due to the fact that is that the “1 percent” that pays less than the “99 percent” when the “1percent” is making more. The majority of the participants of the OWS protagonist are highly-educated young adults in their twenties and early thirties. These young adults have gotten a high education but many have fallen into debt because of paying for their schooling and not finding a job in the workforce. 3. The reason the OWS can be described as a political movement is the fact that a lot of people were join together to protest that they wanted their taxes to be lowered. The 99 percent seek change by protesting that they want everyone to pay the same amount of taxes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
