However, this idea fails to understand the complexity of issues that lead many to fall into the patterns of chronic homelessness. For a majority of these individuals, unfortunate circumstances are the main reason for their plight, not lack of willpower. Kylyssa Shay is a woman who has experienced homelessness before, and she lists multiple disadvantages that cause displaced individuals to have trouble finding a job. If an employer sees that an applicant does not have a consistent address, it is very unlikely that they would consider the person as a potential employee. Moreover, there is the fact that the majority of homeless individuals do not have cell phones or consistent transportation to a workplace.
The majority (90%) of Jamaicans is of African descent with the remaining 10% spread unevenly across ethnic groups such as Indian, Chinese, Syrian and Caucasian. Having once been a colony of Britain Jamaica’s political and constitutional forms show much affinity to Westminster-Whitehall
The issue of homelessness is likely to occur mainly in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Pulau Pinang and Melaka which is a booming city. The government is also working hard to take action to address the issue of homeless people and there are even non-governmental organizations set up to help these people. Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development has set up a special committee to tackle the issue of the homeless and the National Social Council Meeting decided to establish a one-stop center to help the homeless intervention. Hence, the best
Boxill (1995, p.3), in a study of tourism and crime in Jamaica, made reference to a survey conducted in 1992 by the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB). In that survey, Boxill observed that only 2 percent of the tourists surveyed regarded crime as a major problem in coming to Jamaica. The perception of Jamaica being considered as a dangerous destination as caused a reduction of tourist leaving the hotels that they are staying. They tend to stick to all-inclusive hotels or cruise ship. The researchers found out that the all-inclusive concept emerge to assure tourist that if they visit Jamaica they would not need to content with the dangers they were led to
Why is homelessness such a huge issue in the world? Many homeless people have mental illnesses and it is not easy for them to restart their lives and get a job. Many of them also have drug or alcohol problems, which makes it very difficult to get a long term job making enough income to support themselves. Homeless people need help getting off the streets but are unable to do it by themselves. Homelessness is a very huge problem that America has come to face.
This difference has made it harder than ever to be a Haitian living in another country. According to the 2010 census report for The Bahamas, 17.3% of the people living in the Bahamas are citizens of another country. With just under 40,000 (64.4%) being from Haiti or of Haitian descent, 9.2% hail from Jamaica and the rest are a mixture of other races and nationality (see Fig. 1). From the 16 surveys responses that I have analyzed, my research shows that the majority of people, both Haitians, Haitian Bahamians and Bahamians realize that Bahamians do not display the same negative attitude towards people of other nationalities that are living in The Bahamas (see Fig.
Finally, another major issue involved with homelessness is the safety of the populations of homeless individuals. Accomodation for the masses is a major issue when one is confronted with the issue of homelessness. Where are all of these people meant to stay, if not the streets? One answer comes in shelters, but the current shelters available in most cities are often lackluster and not the best places to stay. “The women noted that shelters currently available lack the necessary requirements of basic accommodation,” (Walsh et al.)
The police have to run them from these areas regularly (Issa, Mario, and Mimi). The homeless cannot be comfortable just anywhere because they are always moving from place to place 20 to 25% of homeless people have psychological problems witch needs to be addressed Example(1) substance abuse and mental illness contribute to homelessness.

There are several reasons for this, including low economic growth with low employment generation, tax incentives that give priority to capital intensive projects, sustained public spending adjustment policies, and low institutional capacity to promote and monitor compliance with labor standards or promote formality. Informality in Jamaica will only fall formally sustained in future if there is a strategy for growth that removes the obstacles identified (Elizabeth Tinoco, 2014). There is also extensive labor legislation - documented by O. Taylor, 2001 and confirmed in an interview with a former senior officer of the National Workers’ Union and now Head of the Trade Union Education Institute at the University of the West Indies (O. Taylor, 2001). Taylor noted that: “The present legal and operational framework in Jamaica has significant shortcomings as regards to the protection of workers, whose contracts of employment are disguised under the title of contractor. However, Jamaican workers, who have verified contracts of employment, by and large, do have protection under the various statutes.
Primary homelessness: people without conventional accommodation living on the streets or in improvised dwellings (e.g. Deserted buildings, cars, under bridges). 2.
