Right, because why have to work for your own keep when you can feed off the taxpayers dime month after month like a leech or vampire?
@SlightlyEccentric Every homeless person I've seen has a job, but they still can't afford housing. And they still pay taxes like everyone else.
Woman you're 18. Probably still in high school or just graduated. You haven't seen anything yet.I've seen a lot of homeless who have never held a job, refuse to get one and would rather live off a fat government check every month getting drunk and drugged up than actually earn their keep.Fact is, being homeless is a choice. If they actually used the programs set in place to get out of homelessness then there would be very minimal homelessness, not being at the highest numbers we've seen since the 90s.
@SlightlyEccentric Dude I've been surrounded by homeless people my entire life, I've been at risk of homelessness myself. I grew up in a poor community where there is almost no escape. All of the "programs" people love complaining about are difficult to access and the government finds every loophole possible to screw people over. Obviously there is a minority of people who live off the system, but it's a minority. Those "fat checks" aren't enough to feed people, so they buy unhealthy food because it's all they can afford. And yes, many homeless people use drugs or alcohol, but that use started from getting an injury, being in constant pain, and turning to drugs so that they can stand to live in their own bodies. I have watched people grow up poor, stay poor, and die because nobody helped them. I've seen plenty of it. I managed to get out because I happened to get good grades and get into a good college elsewhere. Few people get that lucky. Most people don't choose to suffer. Stop observing a few lazy people and assuming that's everyone. And don't assume I haven't seen anything because of the age listed on my profile.
@NopeWhatTime… I need to say this. It’s not often you see homeless women. The system offers help to these women but it’s men you see OVERWHELMINGLY on the streets. A woman can easily get a live in situation with friends or family. Sometimes it comes with a cost… a relationship, sex, rent… but with society set to treat women better and more fragile women don’t go homeless very often. Sorry to say that. Also… laziness is the cause of homelessness. To avoid being homeless I worked a job I didn’t like. I’ve offered homeless people a job many times. The pay sucks but you’ll work so much OT you’ll have a home again… but they never contact my contact within the company. Never. Not one god damn time. Not ONCE. And I’ve offered dozens jobs. No I’m sorry these people are lazy and make bad decisions. That’s why their homeless. I went homeless for the same reason. I had to change to come back. But to think the homeless put forth the same effort? Na their lower then society by choice.
@VanillaSalt If you honestly think that trading sex for a home to live in or staying with an abusive person instead of freezing on the streets is "helping" then we are clearly speaking two different languages.As far as people contacting you for jobs: how exactly should they contact you? The phone they can't afford the bill on? Emailing on a computer they don't have? Walking into a store grungy and dirty and getting dirty looks? What do you expect people to do?

He calls himself conservative, Christian and Republican repeatedly on TikTok, such as in this example:www.tiktok.com/.../7057661529025416494
Well, he might call himself that to get donations. Doesn’t sound like he’s any of those things to me.
I apologize. I just realized I didn’t actually answer the question. I do not agree. Homelessness isn’t that black and white, and this will further marginalize some and make it worse for them. That shouldn’t be the goal. Hard Pass!
Obviously he is as fake as Joel Osteen as a Christian.
Then what’s your fix that don’t take legal action or use money?
