I don't have any knowledge about the homeless in Canada but the homeless in the USA
do not need to go to the bathroom on themselves. I think the only way they would do that is
if they are sick or mentally unsound. There are restrooms every where in the USA. There is
also accommodations for homeless in major cities such as free shower and toilet bathrooms,
church's and many accommodations for the homeless such as homeless shelters. In more rural
areas the same pretty much exists including the oceans, lakes, rivers, and bath houses in those
areas. Even plenty of rest stops have rest rooms and showers free use.
In the USA if you are homeless, there are accommodations and there is help for those that really
don't want to be homeless. That doesn't mean they are going to get a new house. It does mean
there are homeless shelters and people that will work with them to find them employment. We
have something called 'Half Way Houses' in the USA that are based on different situations such as
prisoners with no where to go/preparedness homes in addition to rehab housing that helps prepare
homeless people for jobs.
Homeless people in the USA comprise a large variety of people. Everyone from run away teens to
illegal immigrants. There are some people that have never worked a day in their lives but for the most
part that is not true of legal residents unless they are teens. Even so, like I said, the USA has a
variety of programs, shelters, half way houses, etc. Of course, if you have never worked, you would
not receive retirement benefits. However, you may be eligible for other funds.
I am not sure what you mean by try an experiment.
I am not a homeless person and I choose to not be a homeless person.
If you want to try your experiment, go for it.
The funny thing is, Darkstar2, there is businesses right now screaming for help, wanting applicants,
needing workers. Walmart is hiring, fast food joints is hiring, Big box stores like Home Depot, Lowes
is hiring, every where I look, they are hiring.
You can look at it any way you want but in the USA, if you are a legal resident (and usually even if you
are not), there is jobs available. So unless YOU CHOOSE to be homeless, that is YOUR CHOICE. No
one can help you if you have chosen to live homeless.
A lot of people in America that are homeless, have chosen to be homeless. Those that want a home,
they go out and get a job, they work, they seek help, they save, they eventually get an apartment or
become a room mate, there are grants and scholarships and educational opportunities about....there
are business screaming for apprentice workers, roofers, construction, and tons of jobs in America.
