Imagine the homeless man… even if he wanted to get a job, he would never get a chance. There is nowhere he can get a bath to smell clean, no fresh clothes he can wear to look presentable, no fancy resume he can print to impress…. he will forever remain homeless because he will never be able to get a job to pay for his home.
Perhaps we should look at housing as a right for all humans? And perhaps they should be given mandatory work that would draw them a salary to pay for their housing? And perhaps he would then be able to find a job that he is good in and earn enough for a living?
Why are there so many vacant houses anyways?
