In my own opinion,they are lazy.They just wait for someone to work for them or go to street and wait for others to give alms to them. Dont they have arms and feet for them to work? Why wait?why not make a difference?It depends to your choice or decision and your disposition.Dont blame the Government and wait for something. Work while you still have perfect and complete body frame!If disables can do,why cant YOU?!

You are right if those people are really not doing anything to solve their poverty problem. They must do something for themselves. They must work hard. But in most cases poor people really do hard work yet their respective income could not alleviate them from poverty. This is because of unequal opportunity. You can see these situation to most of the third world countries. I can speak of our country where our doctors and nurses are migrating to US and other developed countries to work and live there. Why? because similar kind of work here and abroad is so much different at all when it comes to compensation package. Here a nurse could received $5 for eight hour work but in the US it is at least $50.

i do not think all poor people are lazy, some of them have no choice in the matter,some people are poor because they have been born in poverty, people die trying to get to america so that they can have a better life and not be poor.

I agree completely!! There is no reason whatsoever for poor people to make a difference in their lives.. Yes its pure Laziness! Things happen in Life but thats just how LIFE is.. you have been put on this earth for a reason.. You survive the WORST and you live through the GREAT.. I love my Life and there is NO WAY I would let my family go down in the dumps.. I didnt give birth to my kids to make them poor. There are no excuses whatsoever
