For preventing the poor people on streets, from taking our sidewalk side space and money, and making them beneficial to the economy. By Hailey Wright When you are walking the streets of downtown, and all you see is smelly, dirty homeless people begging for money. All they do is take up all the space on the sidewalks with their cardboard signs and begging for money, annoying people while they walk by the homeless because they are scary and harmful.

Instead of them trying to find a job, theyre always asking for money and when they do get money, they never use it for food and water, theyll most likely spend it on drugs. Homeless people make our cities look horrible, dirty and poor which gives our cities a bad reputation. Theyre a burden to our society and something needs to be done about it. There is no reason for such dirty people to be apart of what seems to be a clean society. The homeless are bringing down the look of this society and environment. The look they are giving our environment is a poor, dirty, uninviting look that scares people away. As a proposal, they should be forced to work extra hard so that the higher class of society dont have to work as hard. After all the homeless are taking up all of the space for free, so they might as well do all of the dirty work no one else has any interest in doing, to get it over with.

Maybe that will make them seem like a less of a burden to our society. If that does not work, we can just ship them off to an island for the homeless so we do not have to worry about them anymore. But it also makes since to place these people in some type of imprisonment too. That will clean up the streets for sure. With help from these proposals there should be no reason for such dirty people to continue to be apart of our society. Once the homeless is gone, the city will become more inviting, and appealing to visitors, this might even make some want to stay. Firstly, we could build more homeless shelters and provide them with more resources to feed them and help them get back on their feet. Secondly, we can could take abandon houses and instead of tearing them down or just letting them rot away we could turn them into homes for them homeless.

Thirdly, we could give them jobs and help them little jobs like cleaning up the roads or cutting the grass for government buildings just to help them make a little bit of money. But none of that will work because no one is willing to put in the work help out others when they need it most, they are just selfish and only care about themselves. I do not have any real intentions in trying to imprison people or send them away just because they do not have a place to sleep or anything to eat.

We just need to help others out more and help these people find a way to seek shelter and food. Weather we do this by sending more food to food backs and shelters or weather it be helping them find jobs there is a real solution here that can be taken to fix this epidemic. The amount of homeless people in the United States is ridiculous and we should really do something about it because people are suffering.
