I am always amused at Commies who think they know why people are poor and attempt to rationalize their power mad scams of theft based upon people they know zero about
Why is person X poor
Person X is frequently poor because of poor lifestlye choices.
1) Person X is in the country illegally and is not supposed to be here. They are thrust into the sub economy and some of these jobs are not all menial. Furthermore the presence of illegal labor depresses wages and increases the cost of social services. Given the cost of education, it is more cost effective to give a family with two children a plane ticket home than to pay for educational costs.
Many illegal aliens do in fact earn a better living than commonly assumed and have enough money to send back home.
2) Failure to get a HS diploma
This restricts the available opportunities. When person X drops out of school this is an individual choice.
3) Substance Abuse
This is a lifestyle issue.
4) Having children out of wedlock.
5) Failure to relocate to where jobs are available or retrain.
Person X is in a factory that closed. Person X may have to relocate or retrain to do something else.
6) Untreated mental illness
This is not politically correct, but some of the poor do in fact suffer from mental illness and despite an army of civil servants remain untreated. Of course the notion that society could mandate treatment was fought by the far left who aided and abetted the plight of Billie Boggs. The notion that she should have been taken into a mental health facility against her will and medicated was fought by the far left.
After speaking in colleges, jobs in law firms Billie Boggs resumed being homeless.
7) Having more kids than one can afford and out of wedlock.
