In this stunning article from The Financial Times it is revealed that despite the availability of jobs the amount of homeless people in Britain is just increasing.
This is not due to “laziness” but due to the cost of renting.
It is too expensive to buy and too expensive to rent which leaves a great deal of people without a roof over their heads despite working full-time.
A common scenario is a rental agreement coming to an end for whatever reason without the tenant being able to find a new home.
This reminds me of something that I read in one of books I featured on here where it was revealed that people collect food stamps in the UK not due to so-called “laziness” or “uselessness” but due to their wages not aligning with the cost of living.
So you can work full-time and still end up without food on the table or without a home.
The gap between rich and poor is only widening making opportunity and socio-economic mobility/innovation increasingly harder.
