Ideas to improve the standard of living for those earning under $18,000 in the U.S.?
saw an extremely thought provoking episode of oprah in which she was discussing the 30M people in the U.S. earning under $18,000, yet working tirelessly to make ends meet. was very surprised to hear of people in positions such as paramedics and lab technicians earning less than $10 per hour and unable to provide properly for their families (one woman profiled was living temporarily in a homeless shelter). raising the min wage will help, but even at roughly 2x where the min wage is today, health care costs are oftentimes enough to break the bank of most hourly earners. curious to hear potential solutions, partcularly from professionals in gov't or economics.
What steps must be taken to improve women's condition in India?
Every person is a part of the nation, if the nation develops, everybody is benefited by it. Religion, caste or gender need not be distinguished. Women’s right, children’s rights, and aged people’s rights are one and the same. Why should we differentiate, different categories, for the sake of rights. Every individual should enjoy their rights.It is true that women suffer more than man in all walks of life. The toughest life for women, is family life. They are born to live with domestic violence. There is no law to prevent it. Family has become a private affair. Mostly man is the head of the family. He enjoys full authority. It is a traditional practice. There is no way to move away from it.Violence against women in public places is a regular affair. Severe punishment to the accused, have not reduced the crime. The only alternative is to provide protection for women at all places. Law and order have to be improved drastically. Women should not move out, without personal protection, till law and order, is fully in place.Employment in all sectors of the economy, is a different issue. Women can’t be replaced in all the jobs, in which men are engaged. Women can’t do all the heavy work, in which men are engaged. They have their limitations. Safety is the first consideration for women than right.
