Class, race, gender, and age are all factors related to health access. First of all, health is linked to social class. Rich developed countries have better health care than poor, underdeveloped countries. Poverty in poor countries results in malnutrition, poor hygiene, and lack of health education which in turn leads to the spread of many diseases; this is especially true in poor countries in the African continent or Bangladesh, for example. In these countries, the country does not have the money to improve the health care with new technologies nor the money to treat all the citizens, and the people who live in poverty do not have the money to pay for their own treatment especially if it is not free.
Nutritious food is too expensive and/or sometimes unavailable. Nearly one third of world population suffers from hidden hunger that is caused by a meager amount of micronutrients in their diets. Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that are essential for prosperous health. When they do not get adequate micronutrients, children’s growth can be stunted, and they can even go blind. This reduces their prospects for healthy and productive lives.
Homelessness has existed since the beginning of civilization, usually because a lot of people at the time are too poor to buy a house. As time goes on, the rate of homelessness rises as the population rises. Homelessness then was mostly caused by a family’s history of being homeless, drug abuse, mental disorders, and tyrannical leaders forcing his people into poverty. In modern times, several organizations are now trying to end homelessness by building cheaper housing projects more affordable to the poor and homeless shelters; these projects usually cost a fair amount of money.
Colleges should be more affordable We all have heard the saying “money can’t buy happiness.” This is true to a certain extent, Many people don’t have enough money to go college for jobs of their interest causing them to live unhappily and not make as much money. “Without a decent job with decent pay, people will fall into poverty. This is mostly has to do with financial situations. Tons of people aren't able to afford to go to college and get the practice they need. Colleges should be more affordable instead of over charging.
Also many homeless people have a mental illness or disability making them unable to have a job. Even those with a job are unable to make a sustainable living off it. Wages are so low that one must work at least two jobs but with housing prices being so high, it makes find a place to live extremely hard. Washington and California have some of the highest minimum wage standards but even that is not a livable wage. We as a society have simplified a solution because many of us do not understand the complex issues that these circumstances
Therefore, there is a connection between poverty and crime. The more the number of people living in poverty, the higher the crime rate, which is obviously bad from a social perspective because it compromises safety and security in the region/country. Furthermore, many people living in poverty are homeless, which forces them to live on the streets, showing the failure of the state to adequately provide for them. 8. LEDC’s point of view It is easy to see why countries with large proportions of their populations living in poverty are interested to reduce that number, both for the good of their people as well as the future development of the country.
Not enough is being done to help those effected directly by poverty and everyone suffers because of it. The government is failing, and the blame is being put upon those who are suffering due to there failure. The effects of living in poverty prevent those effected by poverty from being able to escape it but those who can change it refuse to acknowledge that they are the only ones who can do anything, arguing that those effected by poverty can help themselves. Those effected by poverty can not help themselves and more needs to be done for them. One of the reason’s people can not escape poverty on their own is because of the prolonged effects from growing up impoverished.
Urban areas were the most affected by starvation and hunger as seen in many of the letters. With little or no pay, it was difficult for the people to buy food. Moreover, the price of consumer goods was too high at the time, due to the collapse of many industries. The irony is that rural American areas were producing enough food to feed the nations. However, the high transportation costs made it difficult for the food to reach the people.
As I said before, if there is a good economy rate then prices will affect people with lower incomes and they would be classified as poor and may even live in poverty, which would be bad for the economy. People would be more likely to commit crime to have a better life. In addition, unemployment is also an important source for social problems like crime. For example, France and Spain are currently having high levels of unemployment.
Wealth inequality inevitably has a major role in america's current poverty level, which in turn could possibly lead to crime. One major benefit of wealth equality would be a significant drop in the current crime rate. Many crimes are committed in low income neighborhoods.This is a result of the limited resources in these areas, such as jobs, hospitals, schools, and other basic necessities. Wealth equality would fix these issues by giving them more opportunity and creating new jobs. It would also slowly drop the crime current crime rate over time, causing the economy to also improve in the
