They make an honest living

Re: Blame the parents 

Great idea. Send them back to the village because the modern government of Samoa cannot provide job opportunities for them. 

Let them work the land and then pay taxes while church going government officials of Samoa just go to work to get paid (O.P.C. Report 2010). 

Mind you anyone that makes a living out of handouts and donations should be classified as a beggar. 

Well it looks like street vendors have more resilience and self-worth than hrpp government officials who seek endless foreign assistances to run the country, it’s basically begging but on a different level. 

Only destitute people should resort to begging, I raise my hat to all street vendors in Samoa because they truly earn their keep compared to some corrupt officials in the government of Samoa.
