A job should lift workers out of poverty, not keep them in it. ~Bernie Sanders

I think everyone agrees on the problem.  Nobody agrees on the solution.  Giving people a fish for a day is not the solution.  Legislating a living wage is simply the illusion of control instead of really addressing the problems.  That would require challenging assumptions and rethinking the welfare state and the New Deal and the Great Society. It's those things that keep people in poverty.

Well said. There are no easy solutions here. 

Giving people a fish for a day is a START, to prevent something like, say, starvation.

Like Maslow.
