Cutting back on government help for the poor is creating more homeless.
Preliminary findings by The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty show that tent cities have been documented in almost every state, and they're growing.
A report released by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, for example, found that homelessness and hunger rates are rising, culminating in 47 million Americans living below the poverty line. A fledgling economic recovery, high unemployment and contracting government services are largely to blame.
Raise the MW to $10/hr and there will be 70 million living below the poverty line. Now idiots think. If 7.25 MW is poverty, raise the MW then al of the people that were earning between 7.25 and 10 are the new poverty. Gov't mandating wages is not a solution to poverty. Gov't just creates more poverty. MO and the opinion of ECON 101
