Since 7 out of 10 new jobs are minimum wage jobs and we have already
40 million Americans working full time for $5.15 an hour or a little
more and those 40 million are either living in cars,sleeping on a
couch of a friend or relative,or living illegally doubled or tripled
up in subsidized or public housing,or they are in homeless shelters..
25%-30% of homeless people work full time...So my idea of reinventing
the housing which was torn down in the 60s and 70s i think is a good
idea,,as long as it is very energy efficient and water conserving it
could pay for itself with low rents easily,in fact,i have an idea for
making it Grow as long as it can be kept away from the Banks..
