Poverty is something that happens all around the world. Many people don't have enough money to buy food and some cant afford to buy a house. As the prices go higher the more people have to waist money and the more people will start going pour. We need to know that not everyone

     Poverty is something that many families have to struggle with. It happens all around the world and we don't know how to control it. Poverty is something that we have to control. Poverty changes how the family acts with each other and in general just destroy the family

     According to the Huffington post there are more than 45 million people in America who were living with poverty in 2013. That is 14.5% of Americans living with poverty. That is 15 % less than in the year 20012 but it is still higher than in 2006 which had 12.3% of people live in poverty. On global issues it says that 1 billion children live in poverty and 640 million live without decent shelter, 400 million have no access to safe water, 270 million have no access to health services, and 10.6 million died in 2003 before they reached the age of 5. All of this happens just because they don't have the right amount of money to have decent water, shelter, or food. Many people start going pour because of job issues, and some because of low paid work. There are many reasons on why people can start going pour. Society is making this worse by building new houses for a ridiculous price and markets making the prices higher, how does society want poverty to stop when they are making things worse by making prices higher and more complicated for people to buy what they need the most.

     Some things need to change and the president is the one who needs to make these changes. You can help by making houses at a affordable price something that anyone can afford to buy, change the prices of clothes because everyone needs something to wear, the prices of food needs to change because not everyone can afford to buy 1 apple for like $2, lets help out the people by lowering the taxes off of peoples paychecks, we need every employee to get a good amount of money something that can last like a week, and lastly lets help out by giving the people who are about to go to poverty by giving them reasonable amount of money form the government. All these changes can change the lives of people who are going pour right now because not everyone gets good payment on there job some even need to get two jobs to get enough money for their family.We need to support these families so they can live and have their own journey.
