    Even if every poor person worked hard and went to school to get better pay, who would do all those entry level jobs that are the backbone of the economy? Now of course you might be dense and say “teenagers”, but there are many entry jobs kids cannot do and even they could, there wouldn’t be nearly enough of them working during the school year.

    So what’s the solution to help alleviate poverty, republicans?

    Your post don't make much sense..you do know some people enjoy low level jobs right? If we get rid of 50 million illegals those jobs would pay higher wages...


    If we be more stricter with our welfare programs people would take jobs when the UE is low like today.

    There is always going to be poverty and poor people that is the reality of the world we live in and it's not something politicans and government can fix. LBJ declared war on poverty in 1964 and despite the huge amount of money spent on anti-poverty programs over the years the impact has been minimal. I don't have a solution to the problem and after 50 plus years no politican Democrat or Republican has come up with one either.

    Entry level jobs are for people just entering the workforce, thus the name. More than 200,000 people in the US enter the workforce each month for the first time, that is who is supposed to take the entry level jobs. Those in them now would, ideally, work hard and move up to make room for the next batch.

    In the past 6 year I finished my bachelors and masters and my wife got her nursing degree. The result of doing that is that our family income has more than tripled in the last 4 years. Working hard and going to college can and does pay off.

    No one enjoys the pay obviously.

    There will always be poverty, but our poverty rate is much higher than other developed nations. The income disparity is the widest in the world.

    Interesting comment, if they didn't enjoy the pay how come they don't unionize ?
