i do know some that do
maybe not a majority, but a significant portion have mental health issues
another substantial number have low level life and work skills. in a booming economy they would probably have low level, nominally sustaining jobs
but in our present economy, they have been displaced by higher skilled/higher functioning applicants
we have a group that exploits every free thing that society offers, including a free (well prepared) meal at the soup kitchen
and we have quite a few who are on the margins; this free meal saves them money they are able to spend on other needs
when we first embarked on this project 4.5 years ago, i expected a huge number of guests with chemical dependency problems. i have been presently surprised to see that number is not very large. but those that are addicted appear to also be among the most vulnerable, like many of those with severe mental health issues
I'm not trying to sound insensitive, but the entitlement mentality in this country breeds people who expect things to be handled for them, and at no real sacrifice. These numbers are vastly overblown.
I'd like to see their statistics and study method considering the fact that obesity is much more prevalent in poorer areas.
But you said that the top 10% own ALL of the wealth. That is a completely inaccurate and/or ignorant statement.
