‘Few matters in this nation has more myths and stereotypes surrounding them that poverty’ (Mark, 2013). This occurs because the issue is politicized distorting the truth that is presented on this subject. Firstly, it is a myth that the rate of poverty in this nation is down and that those affected by this are not many. The fact is that there are a good number of poor people in the country and have been subjected to advent poverty for a long time now, and most of them stay in the inner city. The author presents his research whereby he claims that the population in contact with poverty is overwhelming.
The Veterans are the ones most affected by being homeless.Veterans deserve and should have the fist right over government benefits before illegal aliens. “On the whole, veteran homelessness has decreased 47% since 2010 and the number of unsheltered veterans has been slashed by more than half, according to a report released by the obama Administration”. These veterans deserve their rights to have government housing and welfare because they have served our country and these illegal have done nothing but still somehow get in line first. “Often the, housing was kind of earned”.Quigley, Aidan “what 's Behind the decline in homeless among us veterans.” These veterans are working hard to get their housing while these illegal immigrants are just coming coming here and getting all the welfare and help they need. But no one wants to help the veterans why?
This is being written about the poverty level in North Carolina. It will explain how bad the poverty level is in different parts of North Carolina, from the richest to the most poverty stricken. I will include examples of poverty-stricken families, and quotes from people either researching poverty or from people that live in poverty. I will also include what can be done to reduce or eliminate poverty in North Carolina. According to research taken in a U.S. Census, many people continue to live in poverty even though the state is recovering from the recession that occurred in 2007-2008.
They were just ready to acquire these employments in any case in light of the fact that they didn 't get a legitimate instruction. The instruction in these urban ranges is below average on the grounds that numerous educators decline to work in such conditions. Since instructors decline to work there and in light of the fact that the schools aren 't flourishing, the administration chooses to reserve them less. From this, the feeling of "scapegoating a minority" was conceived. Along these lines, it can be depicted that from conception, if one is an African-American, living in a poor urban neighborhood, you are set up for disappointment.
Additionally, the community had no employment opportunities and limited community resources. Lalee’s family shares some similarities with some of the issues urban communities encounter nowadays. The similarities they share are lack of education, unskilled, depend on public assistance, poverty, large family, number of incarceration, absent parents, grandparents raising their grandchildren and great grandchildren, parental lack of responsibility, substance misuse, to name a few. However, urban communities have more resources at their
The final area I researched dealt with the effects on President Hoover’s presidency. During his presidency there was strong opinion he was to blame for the horrible economy because he did little to nothing to help improve people situation. As a result people started to refer to items using his name snidely. An example were Hooverville’s where the homeless population lived in communities of tin structures and had no access to heat, water, or the newly introduced electricity. A few other examples included Hoover blankets, newspapers that were used as blanket, and Hoover flags, an empty pocket turned inside out.
Many who had full-time jobs experienced pay cuts, and reduced benefits and hours, in order to share the pain and thus avoid mass layoffs (Paul Solman 2009). The shortage of workers is projected to get worse if strict measures are not put in place. Changes in the society such as demographic variations associated with an aging population,
According to Marian Wright Edelman, a credible author from the Children’s Defense Fund in Washington, DC, in the article, Ending Childhood Poverty in America, the author discusses multiple ways to increase investments in children without increasing the debt (Edelman, 2016, S7). One of the main things mentioned in the article was reducing and limiting America's military spending. Military funds includes nuclear weapon spending and things such as military assistance and any other pentagon expenses, which costs the US 597.1 billion dollars (Amadeo, 2018). Though these expenses are controversial within the US, it is commonly protested and something liberals advocate for consistently. With that being said, author Edelman emphasizes the fact that the United States is accountable for about five percent of the entire world’s population but more than 37% of the world’s military expenses.
While the goal was to make each dollar more effective to people in poverty, there is evidence of issues with the program over time. Some of this has to do with each state 's autonomy and their ability to decide where the grant money from the government goes. “In 1996, for every 100 families with children living in poverty, TANF provided cash aid to 68 families. By 2010, it provided cash assistance to only 27 such families for every 100 in poverty” (Trisi). This depicts the TANF steadily losing effectiveness.
Hoover had reduced all 1929 income tax rates by one percent because of the continuing budget surpluses. By 1930 the surpluses had turned into a deficit that grew rapidly as the economy contracted” (Smiley). Hoover established a fiscal policy in hope that surpluses would override it. The Fiscal Policy didn’t help the economy, but rather forced it to decline further. As Hoover’s plans failed, it was Roosevelt’s turn to attempt to fix the economy, ‘‘Roosevelt came up with the New Deal programs created a liberal political alliance of labor unions, blacks and other receiving government relief, and intellectuals” (“American Experience”).
