Hoeless in New Jersey : NJ TENT CITY FOR POOR
Chris Christie where are you? Where is your best boy pal now?

Tent cities have popped up across New Jersey including the state’s poorest city.
Meg Baker chased the story of Camden’s tent city. Residing off Route 38 at Wilson Boulevard under an overpass, through woods and down a path of trash lays a community of people living in tents. This particular community was relocated from Federal Street and it’s inhabited by an array of people: addicts, people who have fallen on hard times and some with mental illness.
Baker took a tour of this run down community and the pictures show just how heart-wrenching this situation really is. Among the homes are decomposing food, broken furniture, and feral cats.
We have similar tent cities in upstate Florida, but they are at least they are trying to do something about it. And no increasing the minimum wage is not the answer, it’s Obama’s contracting job market that is the problem. The low income jobs that have vanished under Obama. If we had the same number of jobs as when Obama took office our unemployment rate would now stand at near 12 %, yes it went up from last month.
Not the story the lamestream is telling you is it? How can the unemployment rate be down, if the total people who have left the jobs market has increased???
