In the current days, the homeless phenomenon has spread around the world. Not only, have the poor countries had this kind of problem, but also the countries with advanced and extended power and wealth. According to Baxter (n.d) there are a high number of people suffer from being homeless in the city of New York, because of the employment and the cost of everything is higher specially the housing. However, some people are born poor and that’s what makes it inevitable for them to be homeless. Drug and alcohol abuse, unemployment, and lack of affordable housing are three causes of homelessness.
As mentioned before the classic period was quite unfortunate times for the Mayans, hundreds of thousands of people were living in the cities. While the number of people were increasing in the cities, living conditions and especially, the space for each people were decreasing. Obviously, not only living patterns affected, but also the economy and culture. More people means more demand for the food, thus, the need for agricultural growth also increased. Nonetheless, such demands could not have fulfilled at that time because overpopulation happened not only in a city, but a whole Yucatan peninsula.
The Industrial Revolution witnessed the evolution of large urban centers, such as Boston and New York City. It changed society from agrarian to mechanical, which further moved jobs to larger cities.

In many urban areas where crime is present in neighborhoods, there's a title of underclass people. The underclass has single parent homes mainly mothers, drug use, and many other factors that are found in a poor neighborhood. Arrests tend to be high in these areas because of the increase in crime.

Social inequality happened as often as breathing in the 1930’s and even still some in today's society. Economic inequality and tolerance back in the 1930’s compared to today's world is very different, now it doesn’t happen as often as it did. The way the world has evolved compared to then and now is substantial and reflects how we as people are becoming better. I will show you the way life has changed from how people get treated and the economic system has changed. In the book it was well known that a certain family in the town that got treated very poorly because of how they got their income and how much they got from it compared to every other person in town.
At this point it was widely acknowledged that many of America’s cities faced severe economic, fiscal, and social problems. In hindsight the problems were two fold. First, as Harold Wolman points out in his exhaustive essay titled The Reagan Urban Policy and its Impacts “metropolitan-area population and employment had decentralized, leaving central cities trapped within fixed boundaries with a disproportionately high share of the needy populations and social problems like unemployment, poverty, crime and poor overall health, but a disproportionately low share of the tax base” (Wolman, 312). In addition, Wolman went on to point out that urban centers had a higher share of minority residents at the time, which caused the problems of minorities to be seen as identical to the issues facing urban
Gentrification is a harsh reality that affects thousands on a day to day bases. With a series of relocations, erasure, and price hikes in all aspects, it has been made clear that the effects of gentrification are not a positive one nor is it an isolated incident. Despite all of these very real factors, one may argue that gentrification is a necessity for community growth but it is clearly another form of imperialism where the rich benefit and the poor are moved out and left to figure it out. Gentrification effects people in urban communities in all fifty states of America. According to “Gentrification in America” by Mike Maciag between the years 2000 to 2015 the acceleration of gentrification affected nearly 20 percent of urban communities.
Have you heard of how many people are in the streets in Honduras? Honduras is the second country with the most economical problems in Central America. Economical problems clearly lead to lots of problems, the lack of job opportunities lead to economical instabilities, economical instabilities lead to lots of things, in this case homelessness. About 200,000 Hondurans find themselves with no home and no warmth of a family. This kind of economical situation has been going on for quite a while and in my opinion its time for us to join together.

During the late 1800s, European immigrants began to migrate into the United States. Many of them came for economic, religious, and social opportunities. Majority of the immigrants came to look for work in America’s expanding industrial firms. Upon arrival most of the immigrants settled into major cities that had job opportunities that required no-skill to low-skill, which were found in industrial firms like New York and Chicago. Unfortunately, majority of the immigrants were poor and by the 1910 they began to overcrowd the cities, primarily the slum areas.

For the workers, there is no reward that compensates for their hard work. They are confined to work for a very little wage. The wretched working class was constrained to be poor whereas the rich became richer. The market revolution changed the America system and its beliefs, in the hope of new opportunities for jobs. This was a new era of work, where families no longer work in farms, and people are migrating to the cities where the works are.
