Question: Helping the poor and low-income families, Is it the most important form of social action right now? CPNN article: Ehrenreich book: nickle and dimed - on not making it in America

Many comments have agreed that the homeless and low-income families are an area that needs to be targeted in relation to social action. However there was a question of whether it should be a priority. Many felt there were other areas that needed to be addressed also. But its importance was not degraded. Understanding the tensions behind these social problems made it important to relate it to other social concerns. "People become more tense and violent when they have poor living options."

It is also important to take up the questions of government aid like welfare and the discrepancies in monetary allocation for those on welfare. The system makes two people work fulltime while they still live below the poverty line. All are in consensus in working to fix this problem but its priority is not agreed upon.
