Who’s really poor?
Poor generally refers to a class of people who make $10,000 a year or less to cover their living situation, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.
By that rather rigid definition, I could say I’m poor when I don’t make an income (even if it’s by choice).
Or children/teenagers/students who don’t work are poor.
Therefore, for me, a poor person is someone who makes $10,000 a year or less, and who has no outside or other help other than from charities to cover their living situation.
That means if you don’t work, you live at home, and someone else covers your bills for food, shelter and other things, you aren’t poor.
