And they'll stay on the the street as long as they think goverenment [sic] going to hand them a job.
I deal with quite a few unemployed and more than a few homeless folks.
None of them "think government is
going to hand them a job," although many would like a little more help of some kind. For the most part this POV is a smug fiction entertained by the unafflicted and comfortable - though I'm sure you can repeat or at least link (ah, the wonders of the Internet) to an anecdote of some kind that "proves" me wrong.
