For the able, but unwilling it is. You have to look at what you are doing to contribute to your present sitution.....as Dr. Phil would say "own it" .
Depends on who you ask.
If you ask responsible people who are doing their best in this world to improve themselves, then yes.
If you ask the people who want to sponge off the government, waiting for their handouts while changing "woe is me" and "who will help us", then no.
Just a little side note. Back in the late 1990's, the fast food chain, Hardee's, closed their restaurants here in Memphis because they couldn't get anyone to work. They were offering between $6.00 and $6.50 an hour to start. Seems that most of the people who applied either told them they wanted more and wouldn't work for a penny less, or that they could make more off welfare.
Many people born in the US will look at immigrants and wonder why they, for the most part, do so well in such a short time. It's because most are willing to struggle so that their kids can go to good schools and do better then them.
It only takes one generation for a family to go from poor to middle class. Parents need to be willing to sacrifice for their childrens future.
Not only that, in many cultures, children are expected (and do) to help their parents after their children are established and working. This isn't something we see often in North America. It's also quite common to see this in larger French/Catholic families here, can't speak for there of course.
Literacy is important. Children are expensive. If people don't learn those two simple rules they will very likely be poor and why feel sorry for them?
Children are not expensive. For the first year of their life, they pretty much eat for free...after that, goodwill can clothe them - and make them eat whatever they can catch running/scampering about the house.
I don't know about yours but my kid was expensive!
I figure our kids cost us about...$400 a month in food and extra ulitities.
People don't plan to fail. They fail to plan.
