Homelessness in the United States

In a country with an extremely low unemployment rate as in the United States today, there should not be so many who are homeless. So why are so many homeless?

In addition to those who are homeless today as I write, there are even many more in the United States just one step away from being homeless? Why?

And I am not even counting all of those adults in the U.S. who are living with family and friends because they can’t afford to pay for an apartment or home on their own.

Here are two videos that every American should watch… Homelessness can happen to good, successful people….. Success is just failure turned upside down…. and failure to earn enough money to have a home can happen to good people over night!

This is not the America that we should be living in! Finland does it better.

See these 2 videos.

America is failing even people who are working are homeless because the cost of rent is so high…
