Also, home ownership increases the amount of care people have upon the property owned (Gordon 2004). However, one disadvatantage that affordable housing poses is that more and more people are being priced out of home ownership (Shelter 2015). This means that the rent of house increases and more people are competing for every single
I believe that the best way of solving this would be creating a non profit foundation with a goal of providing homeless and poor people with accommodations. Building houses for many people may be a little out of reach because it would take a lot of resources, I believe a better way is to build a big complex/apartments for people. The article suggests that people does not like living in accommodations like hostels because there are many people and it does not feel like home, which I agree with. However, when you are given free accommodations, I feel like you should not be picky and appreciate it
Investing in affordable-housing can bring profit and it is a safe investment for every company. The demand for affordable housing is large and stable, so compared to the commercial housing projects, the investment in social housing projects seems still less risky investment for owners’ investment (Stock investment, 2015). In the same way, supporting low and middle income households to find and live in affordable housing is essential to the competitiveness of the nation’s economy. To illustrate this, a study by Ryder (2015) found that, for every £1comapny invests, housing associations invest up to £6 of their own money. While affordable housing does require investment to make it work, it is still excellent value for taxpayers.
Transportation Justice is getting from point A to point B and justice is the freedom or right to something. Transportation Justice helps the low-income people of color because that is mostly the people that can’t afford the transportation and have to take a trolley or a bus. It helps low-income families and communities have transportation services when they need them since they can’t afford other ways of transportation. Transportation Justice will be a big part not only in our community but in the world it will help get things done faster, everything will be smoother, and it will help a lot of low-income communities get to school and jobs. Why is Transportation Justice so important?
Are school meals really that unhealthy? Why do so many people want healthier school lunches? Although many students don’t believe that the school lunches are unhealthy, schools should try to make every effort to increase the amount of healthy foods and to decrease the amount of junk food being sold because healthy foods are more nutritious and energy-rich so students can stay focused in class. In addition, much of the American population is obese and the rate of obesity is growing. And finally, junk food leads to other physical and emotional problems.
Instead more citizens could be financially stable and offer high quality schools for future students. “…we cannot allow our disadvantaged children to continue to be undereducated in poorly conceived, poorly staffed, and poorly governed underfunded public schools. It is morally wrong and economically unsound…” (Ikpa 470). Children don't deserve to suffer because of their parents income levels.
Preterm births and low birth weight affect different states in the USA in a variety of ways. For example, research done in 2004 proved that preterm births are common among non-Hispanic African Americans women at 17.8 percent and least among the Asians and the Pacific Islanders women at 11.5 percent. The rate of low birthweight among non-Hispanic African Americans are also considerably high compared to the non-Hispanic white. Low birth weight among children brings creates a lot of problems. Children born with this condition require regular medication which is costly (Tambyraja & Mongelli, 2003).
Health inequities are differences in health status or in the distribution of health resources between different population groups, arising from the social conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. Health inequities are unfair and could be reduced by the right mix of government policies. Every day 21 000 children die before their fifth birthday. They die of pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and other diseases. Children from rural and poorer households remain disproportionately affected.
In some countries transfers or social grants are given to caregivers of children under a certain age. • However, these grants should not be too high, because in some cases these grants encourage the parents to have more children so that they can use the money to survive. b. Businesses • If people are poor
People wonder why there are luxury buildings being built in poor communities. There are people out here in this world that don’t understand why the low income people move in those buildings if it’s in their community. As we American citizen have been living through the hazard of others over buying our homes and or having homes removed to another area by the government. Gentrification should be slowed down because demolishing small business and homes to build a big corporation, and condos to make more money should not be done. The government is supposed to help the people whose buildings that are being torn down to have the low income class buildings be renewed.
It is not fair to have those who work so hard to have possession on what they work hard to do so that soon having to wait on the time to pay for the large amount of currency they must pay for being on the higher income
For low income families, purchasing expensive clothing that can only be used for school can be a hassle and a waste. The option of finding secondhand uniforms is also available. Some people give away their uniform for a cheaper price or for free as they do not need it anymore. If money is a problem, some schools can give financial aids that would help with getting a uniform. Having a uniform has advantages and disadvantages, but the advantages are more favourable.
Effect of Gentrification: Introduction In this paper I will describe and explain the impact of gentrification on people of color living in the greater Seattle area in the regards to the issues of accessing housing. Ruth Glass coined the term “gentrification” in 1964 to describe the phenomenon of middle-class settlement in previously working class neighborhoods and the subsequent displacement of the working class residents. In response to these negative images, those with a stake in the process of gentrification, including developers, city planners and new residents, have attempted to replace the term with a variety of alternatives: revitalization, renaissance, rehabilitation and reinvestment (Ruth Glass). Rising property values in the light
Poverty has been a consistent problem throughout history. No matter what the median income, unemployment or overall prosperity level is, there will always be people who are in a state of poverty. Despite being one of the most prosperous countries in the world, the United States is not immune to it either. In 2010 the University of Michigan’s National Poverty Center calculated that twenty-two percent of children living in the United States lived in poverty, exceeding the average fifteen percent of the overall individuals living in the United States (npc.edu). Women also are twice as likely to live in poverty then men are and even larger percentages of people living in poverty are found in minorities living in the United States.
