44% of Homeless People Are Employed

Hours at Minimum Wage Needed to Afford Rent

 

Read the 2009  National Coalition for the Homeless fact sheet:

Employment and Homelessness

In recent years, media reports of a growing economy and low unemployment mask a number of important reasons why homelessness persists, and, in some areas of the country, is worsening. These include stagnant or falling incomes, and less secure jobs that offer fewer benefits.

The worsening economy and rising unemployment numbers emphasize a number of reasons why homelessness continues to exist and grow in exponential numbers in the United States.
