Growing Number Of Homeless On The Streets Topic On Paltalk
In Florida, two guys who lost their jobs and who are now homeless are living in their SUV.
In California, people are living in their RVs, parking on city streets overnight and then being forced by the cops to move on in the morning. Their new "neighbors" are none-too-pleased with the RV invasion.
Also in California and elsewhere, shantytowns are popping up with greater frequency.
It used to be that many Americans would simply avoid homeless people and the problem of homelessness believing that most are drug or alcohol abusers or mentally ill. But that's not true any longer. An increasing number of homeless people are just like you and me. Except that they have lost their homes and/or their jobs. They are victims of the economy, looking for work. But with no permanent address, finding it difficult to get a job.
The changing face of homelessness in America will be the topic on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com at 5 PM New York time today. To join in the conversation CLICK HERE.
