Why Don't Homeless People Just Get Jobs?
It seems like any homeless person could easily get a job and get a home, right? So why don't they just get jobs and get apartments?
Many Homeless People Have Jobs Already
Despite having a job, people still can still lose their homes or be unable to afford housing
Jobs Provide Money But Money Alone Isn't Enough To Rent An Apartment
Working Does Not Guarantee Housing
They Don't Have Regular Addresses

Some Employers Will Not Consider Unemployed Job Applicants - ...not even those with homes
- Out-of-work job applicants told unemployed need not apply
Businesses are screening out unemployed applicants under the perception that anyone who has been laid off must have been let go for performance issues.
- Unemployed Need Not Apply
More and more businesses require job applicants to already be employed to be considered for employment.
