The way we could change this poverty problem is by telling people to use their money wisely. They should know that they don't earn as much in a week. Why spend so much money on things they don't need. Using their money wisely can help the not be part of the federal poverty. If this ever happens to me I will make everyone use their money little by little for important stuff. If it's not important but they want to buy something I am going to make them buy something that's not so expensive that can take all of their money that they earned in a day or maybe even a week. Those are my thoughts on people that are on poverty and what if poverty actually happened to my family.
