HomelessnessHave have lost all their money on gambling.

HomelessnessHave you ever given a homeless person food or money, have you ever wondered how they got there? That homeless person might have lost their jobs. They also could have lost all their money on gambling. Or worst of all they ended up on the street due to drug and alcohol abuse. Now here are some reason how someone  can end up on the street.A main cause of people living on the streets is because of their work. People go to  work and then they get caught doing drugs why they are supposed to be cooking for a restaurant or setting toys on racks for a toy store and then they get fired. Or you might lose your house because you are only getting paid minimum wage. Minimum wage for example in the state of Missouri is $7.65 an hour. And it doesn’t help if someone already is getting paid minimum wage and then they go and spend money on drugs which is expensive. And that is how families lose their homes and live in homeless shelters. People might lose their jobs and start to live on the streets due to unemployment but homeless people also end up on the streets because of drugs and alcohol. On average 6 out of 10 homeless people spend their money they get for drugs. It also says the that the united states spends 100 billion dollars annually every decade on illegal drugs.  Someone could be living a healthy life and then someone told them to try some drugs. They then get addicted and can’t stop until they are out of money. This puts people people on the streets. Alcohol has the same effect. Both of these ways can lead to living on the streets but then living on the streets becomes living in a coffin.One day a wife comes up to her husband and says we should take a trip to Las Vegas. When they get there they go to a casino and they can’t stop gambling until there out of money. Once they start gambling they can’t stop. In 2014 America spent 142.6 billion dollars while China who spent the next most amount of money only spent 95.4 billion dollars. It’s like drugs, Once  they get some money they go to the casino and spend their money. It is very rare to win. Between 15 and 20 percent of homeless people became homeless because of a gambling addiction. I am not saying that it is impossible to win the lottery or hit the big one in a slot machine. Just get addicted and lose your house. These were all different ways you could become homeless. Just be careful not to get adiccted to spinning the slot machine
