”I understand people would be wondering how this would affect our economy positively. Let’s consider this. In the south here where Education is considered to be very important in many families , parents spend a lot of money on educating their children.
”Many of these parents are civil servants who only rely on their salaries in these times when the minimum wage is a meagre $83.5. These parents are forced to take different loans to educate their offspring and keep them healthy , thereby making their monthly net income to be insufficient.
” This is one of the reasons why more people keep slipping into extreme poverty everyday. Almost half of the population is already in abject penury and all hands must be on deck to avoid the worse.”
