It is ridiculous to expect the private job market to supply all the jobs that the people of this country need. In bad times, the large companies just throw away people -- some to live under bridges. There should be a profits tax that goes toward employing the very poor. That, coupled with a doubling of the public low income housing stock, would go a long way to reducing poverty.
