There are many homeless people out on the streets of the large cities
in this great nation. When unemployment still hasn't gotten near zero and
new jobs are being created every day, people are starting to ask why there
are still homeless people in the alleys and on the sidewalks of this
country. This seems to be an ever haunting problem even though it would be
so easy for homeless people to just get a job. Let's look at the general
requirements for applying for and keeping a job. All you have to do is
have nice clothes to make a decent impression, a home address and some way
to be reached in tight situations, and a way of getting to work in the
morning or night--whichever the case may be. That's it. And I, for one,
have reached a solution to this widespread laziness.
First of all, most homeless people spend their days hunting through
trash cans and dumpsters for a piece of sustenance or at least something of
value. If they're not doing that, they're begging for spare change on
street corners. Eventually, one would think that they should be able to
afford a couple of respectable suits or other outfits to wear while
applying and even working for this job of theirs. All they have to do is
poke around a little longer or beg a little more, and that job would be
theirs to enjoy. Keeping these articles of clothing clean would be
difficult, but manageable. If you can't afford a coin operated laundromat
(I'm sure there'd be plenty of left over change from begging), just find
some large, clean puddle of water in the street to wash things in. As for
cleanliness, I'm sure people throw away left over deodorant or
antiperspirant, soap, and other such toiletries to where you can care of
the bathing problem. You don't need to clean your hair, in fact, doing so
would rid yourself of the natural oils that build up over time and actually
hold your hair style in place.
Second, with all the left over money and such, they could go to one of
those Mailbox Etcetera stores and buy themselves a mailing address. That
just means they'll have to cope with eating only what they find in the
garbage, and not spending any of that extra cash on that frivolous fast
food, or that healthy vegetable stuff. Suppose they absolutely need a
phone number also. What's stopping ...
