Many people blame homelessness on the homeless person, and they believe that the solution to homelessness is each homeless person working hard to get a job.
If you are one of those people that believe homeless people should simply get a job then you need to start hiring homeless people.
With all seriousness, do you know any employers that are hiring homeless people and providing enough income so that homeless person can get out of homelessness? You don’t!
The leading cause of homelessness is a lack of affordable housing, and that’s OUR fault! Homeless tent encampments are now affordable housing in America. Only 1% of minimum wage workers can afford a one bedroom apartment!
There are more truckers than any other profession, and in 10 years trucks will drive themselves. Pharmacist are going to be eliminated by computers. Automation will kill most jobs in this country!
The bottom line is homeless people are not homeless by choice. No one chooses to be homeless. Yes, we all make bad decisions, and we all need help along this journey called life. But NO ONE deserves to be without a home. And even if you don’t agree with that, YOU pay huge taxes for every homeless person on the street. The smart solution to save lives and save taxpayer money is to get people off the streets and into housing.
