Cost of living

Re: Money woes forces children on streets 

The perpetual increase in the cost of living and the stagnant minimum wages have forced these poor children to drop out of school to help their parents provide extra income for the families. 

This problem will continue to thrive if the government neglects to address the issue and admit that there is a problem. 

Now a new task force have implemented to tackle this problem is the light at the end of the tunnel for these poor children. 

Hopefully it will provide a better solution to influence a positive outcome of hope and decency faced by our future generations going forward.
