This book was well written and I enjoyed reading it but there are some points of view expressed that I can't agree with. I do think the author is correct in saying that there are too many people trying to save the poor and that if the money spent on all of these useless resources were spent on creating jobs for the poor it would alleviate some of the problem. I do think, however, that her point of view is a little narrow minded in that she is basing her reasoning on her own personal situation rather than the very diverse situations that exist. A job is not going to help a person who is physically or mentally disabled to the point of being unemployable. For these people the only real help is more financial assistance. There are so many factors that lead to poverty that, to really make headway, all of these factors would have to be addressed and currently none of them are. Bandaid solutions are not solutions. Childcare, medical care, housing, nutritious food, transportation, and all other necessary factors of life have to be provided before work is even a possibility.
I enjoyed reading the stories of all the people that she interviewed. I wasn't at all surprised by the hopelessness of some of them. I guess this shows that I have lived with some of these problems myself and have learned all the little tricks to stay alive.
While the book focused on the cuts the Ontario Provincial government made a few years back it is applicable to anywhere that has suffered the same fate. Here in British Columbia there were more cuts than occured in Ontario and many of the same consequences.
Finally, I don't think poverty will ever be eradicated because the capitalist system depends on poverty to function. Poverty is the foundation of capitalism. Who would work at all the low wage dirty jobs if there were no poverty? There has to be a constant pool of unemployed to feed into the low wage system.
