In many areas of society many people live in a state where they do not have enought income to meet their daily living needs There are many issues that faces these people lack of job housing not able to acquire a better education More house holds are feeling the stress of not being able to meet basic needs regardless of having a job If the job marked is increase then that will help to motivate and uplift the poverty stricken areas

All over the world are suffering from crisis and most of it are lack of money to sustain their needs and also lack of vacant work for the people who will help their basic needs. In my place the reason why people experiencing hunger because of the corrupt government officials that they are living in prestigious mansions and having a tour all over the world by using the money that is for the people. Sometimes we could not blame the gangsters why they made the crime because they thing that it is the only way they can help their family for their daily needs. Mostly, the people have no satisfactions in life because i have notice that if we have a good job and a good salary, it comes to the point that they also increases the budget of the household. How i wish that there will be a good people that they can help to stop the poverty.

unfortunately, the "good" people who can stop poverty are not good enough not to want to hog the wealth all to themselves. the richer people are the more of an interest they have in poverty. poverty creates wealth for who's the highest on the food chain. it is up to us to help one another (on the lower end of the totem pole) through this crisis.

My feelings about poverty is that its always been here and will continue to be here until we decide that it's no longer and option for anyone to go without the basic necessities of life. A lot of people are feeling the pinch of poverty especially here in the U.S. because of this new "paradigm shift" in the world economy. I think this trend of the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer will continue. I believe here in the states we need a government which is sensitive to the needs of the electorate such as tax breaks for the working class, better access to government programs and assistance last but not least an electorate that is on about the same page "one for all or nothing at all". ...

poverty is one of those timeless topic.. means it never gets old because it happens in every era and never have been resolved satisfactorily. we always and always talk about these things hoping we could somehow do something about it but no matter what we do its always there, but then again i heard someone who was born in poor family but was able to provide for his own that poverty is only for those who are lazy. opportunities are everywhere you just have to take time to find one that works. as long as your healthy enough to work then you'll never starve.

yes thats true i guess every country have this kind of problem. worst is, those poor people are those who have a lot of kids that only makes them more struggling from poverty. im so guilty sometimes that i need to throw most of my foods coz it just spoiled since i forgot to eat them thinking that there are too many children out there have nothing to eat. i guess its their parents fault. if they know they cant give good future to their kids at least they should have 1 child and do something to give the child a better life. i guess education is the key if they able to have a degree. while some is being a hard working person and not being lazy and not to just wait from help from government and other people.

I think that poverty is the biggest problem for human. To rich man are becoming richer and poor becoming poorer. Until small distribution of money it is not possible to make human equality.

it's just a shame that people who have jobs are going through this. that doesn't make any sense at all. you are slaving your butt off in the labor force and can't pay your bills. what a shame. that's what gets me.

This is quite true as most of our people are living in state of poverty in which there daily needs are hardly fulfilled of so. The main reason behind this is over population and due to world recession life is being made more tough nowadays that there may be more people under poverty line of so i would like more views from you of so.
