The all-time biggest question for homeless people is “why not try to make money” (Conley 27). The majority of homeless may be too lazy or unmotivated, but other homeless are unable to get jobs or just simply do not make enough money to uphold themselves. 1/3 to ½ of homeless are already employed but are unable to financially sustain themselves. On the other hand, many jobs require an address, or phone number which is a huge problem for many homeless. Transportation to and from work, along with dressing up smart to fit your job are also factors to consider when homeless try to get employed.

And it pained him to realize that the mother of his children was just like them.” Wes realized that his job wasn’t a real ‘job’, it was a source to feed addictions like Cheryl’s.

He wasn’t making much money from the low paid jobs that he was offered through the program, he needed to take care of his children with both financial and parental support, with all of these situations happening one after the other, he was feeling very overwhelmed. Although Wes knew he didn’t want to stray back to his old habits, it took the best of him, the one thing that Wes took away from his childhood was the easiest way to make money, and that consisted of one thing; the drug business, the chapter ends with him preparing a bag of cocaine with tears welling in his eyes, with disappointment for
However, it is sad that a significant percentage of the population ends up homeless owing to the rising costs of living and little or no sources of income that dominate the state (Bussewitz Par. 7). Most homeless people in Hawaii work full-time jobs that are only enough to provide food for the families making it a better option for them to stay in tents along beaches and sidewalks rather than paying the ever-escalating apartment rent. Single adults and families have become accustomed to living in the streets and beaches, which endangers their health and the security of those who visit such

Stress can weaken the immune system, cause higher rates of depression and mood disorders. Gender equality has progressed over the years however women still experience discrimination which negatively impacts both their mental and physical health.

The Middle East has long struggled to show their women the rights and freedoms offered to most other women of the world. The struggle to gain equality amongst men has been unsuccessful as women today are still oppressed. They’re forced to cover the bodies and sometimes their faces, they can’t leave their homes without the company of a man, and they aren’t allowed to receive an education usually past middle school. These are just some of the things women are forced to deal with. Despite these restrictions seeming cruel and pointless, there are people who support this, including women.
If sex offenders are addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is much harder for them to receive help from treatment centers because many of the programs cannot take in sexual offenders. Also, they may face a hardship when it comes to finding a job, because many places will not hire people who have a felony. Sex offenders will also have a hard time finding a place to live because a landlord can refuse to let the offender rent from them. They also have to be a certain distance away from any schools, playgrounds etc. Some risk factors for drug use found with sex offenders include; family history of addiction, being a male, mental health disorders, anxiety, depression, and loneliness.
Nevertheless the women's could not attend programs like medical school, they were kept out of any ordinary occupation of their choices, but in the 1960's there was a small amount of women that were doctors, lawyers and the women's where discrimination on their salary, therefore the man's salary was much higher and was not giving the women a fair partnership.
