Homelessness is an issue that has been unfortunately established in communities and has not yet met a breakthrough in means of a solution that will end it once and for all. Of course, ideas have been given into consideration, it is obvious that the most practical solution would be to pull those whose home resides in the streets into forced labor without payment, in other words, have them work as slaves. As for the starvation that they often suffer, unfortunately, they will feed off of the remainder of food that customers leave behind on their trays. By all that, my proposition is for those who have nothing but the streets as a suitable home to work in fast food establishments such as Mcdonald’s, Wendy’s or Burger King. After all, what better way than to have the homeless as human tools for completing numerous tasks, and not having to pay them a dime?

A very good solution indeed! And it would mean having to pay less if you are someone who’s in charge of a business with numerous others that happen to work there as well and are too receive a paycheck. My reason is that currently in the United States there is a percentage of 31 adults who do not work and 25% of those who do not have a high school diploma in possession. It really speaks quite a lot when you see these statistics and come to the conclusion that the people who make up that percentage are all lazy bums who found their way to the path of homelessness. Although the reasons as to why there are some who end up in the streets don’t entirely revolve around being lazy and not striving for a proper education, rather it is because they have suffered loss of their home after a natural cause broke out such as a tornado, earthquake, and others that could be counted as so. For those who are under 18 years of age and live in poverty, the rate happens to be 17. 5% and for those who are 18 to 64 years old, the rate is 11. 2%. When you reach the age of 16, you are no longer forced to attend high school and are free to drop out if you wish. But dropping out means that the student will not receive a high school diploma, and where exactly will that lead them? Will they fault others for their lack of responsibility to maintain themselves? Do they choose to erase those steps an return to school?

Well, it would be quite difficult seeing as they let themselves go to ruins. As for the other range of ages such as 30 or over, it is more than impossible for them to retrieve an average way of living for they are too close to death than they are with anything else. It is especially essential that an elder is put for labor in these fast food establishments since they are nearing their death closer and closer each day. It would mean getting rid of all the unnecessary lazy homeless people that occupy the streets. The reason as to why I am proposing for the labor to specifically take place in a fast food environment is because fast food is known to contain many calories. For example, a double homestyle burger at McDonalds contains 690 calories. If the homeless are too eat the remainders that are left on the trays of customers, they will soon no longer be starving, but obese as well if they are just supplementing that into their diet. Obesity is another factor that will lead them to their end without having to take matters into your own hands.

In conclusion, I highly believe that if this proposition were taken into work, there would be no more of homeless people.
