There are many reasons for being poor. The major ones are inadequate education and lack of skills. They don’t want to depend on the government but they are wanted nowhere in today’s competitive job market. It is impossible for them to have formal education in classrooms, So the government should provide some remedial education and training in job skills. Many of them also need some guidance about what they can do or they should do. Next is the government either national or local should create as many jobs as possible.
