Can You Live On $2 dollars a Day?

Posted on 03/17/06 at 11:46:03 am by Shanna

I think that it's not fair because people get paid $2 a day. Most People can't live on two dollar's a day. There life would be very horrible because They wouldn't buy anything during the day because they would have to use the money to eat.

i don't really think its fair to other people that they barly get any money.they have work for it and this stars that are getting paid for do what ever they do. they probably get paid about 100,000 probably a day.if i was one of the three riches people on the earth i would give to the poor, hospital ,and pther kinds of places.

rich or Poor

For the rich people there should be something like taxes where they have to give some money to the poor. Which I think it isn't fare to the poor people cause sometimes they only get to eat just once in a day.I think there should be somthing where they can get a job where they could get payed at least so they can maintain thier families and live well. Also the rich people so buy a company so they could work and get payed at minumen wage.

The life with $2 a day

I think it's crazy that some people live off only $2 a day. I would not be able to live with only $2 a day. I would be so hungry!! I don't think that I would live for long!!!!

It ain't fair to be the top rich's person because they live better,If I were the three top rich's person I would give money to every homeless person.

Rich People

I think that everybody would like to be rich. And that can't happen because the people that it's all ready rich just to get richer and suck in more money every day. Ritch peple think every body live like them.

If I was rich I would help the people by giving them jobs.

Hi 4th Hour,

For your second assignment, please write at least 5 sentances in response to any of the following facts and questions.

Half the world — nearly three billion people — live on less than the cost of a hamburger at McDonalds. Is this morally right? Could you live on $2 a day and survive? What would your life be like?

The three richest people in the world have more money than all the people in 48 countries combined. How would you feel if you were one of the richest people? Would you share your money with others? Would you help others?

The top 1% of Americans have more wealth than the bottom 95% combined. The United States has the widest gap between rich and poor people of any industrialized nation. How do you feel about poverty in America? Can you give some examples of poverty? How can we change this problem?

- Mrs. Anderson
