So, as you can see a number of "low income" [specifically the projects] threads are circulating. So how far would the average person go if your children were starving??
Do they have the means to buy the best food?? No. Do they have the means to go to a higher level school?? No. In most cases the area they live has little or no jobs.....so what do they do?? They sell drugs...run guns...and anything else that pays the bills. So, they do this with the intention of getting out BUT the easy money drags them in. Before you know it...someone has been arrested or worse, killed.....and the cycle continues. It breaks my heart.
So, how far would the average person go?? When I was on assistance, as a single Mom, I got $842/month.....my rent alone was $650/month....that sure doesn't leave much left over for groceries...utilities...and the such. I don't know how people do it. I'd be stressed ALL THE TIME and was. So, what would the average person do in order to make ends meet?? Would anyone here break the law?? What if your children were starving?? The food bank only supplies so much. People judge the poverty stricken so harshly but they are only doing the best they can with what they have. So, what would you do??
