Doesn't this just look bizarre?
Bunch of beds in a big room with a couple banners that read 'Healing' and 'Dignity.' Like, what?
If a person is homeless it's because they ran out of money. Really simple. The way to get money is to get hired.
So they should get a job. Obviously.
But that's the definition of unemployment, seeking a job (without having one). Some homeless have jobs, but let's exclude them for this discussion. Let's assume all the homeless here are unemployed and they just ran out of money trying to cover expenses, and so say they just got evicted and that was the end of that. End of story, they're homeless now.
The question I want to ask is this: why doesn't somebody hire them? Surprise, I'm twisting this one and pinning it on the community business owners.
What's wrong with you that you won't hire an unemployed person?
This is the question that we as a society need to fess up to. Because in all seriousness, what is that homeless shelter?
It's just a big room to stuff the people nobody wants to hire into so that they can feel better about not hiring them. Like, 'yeah I mean I do own the means of production and all, so I guess the least I can do is donate to a shelter.'
I don't know man. There's something really nasty and messed up about this situation when you break things down and realize that the same people funding shelters are the same people who are business owners. That's all I'm saying.
