"1. My motivation for my research paper was to see why so many people go hungry in a country that perceives to be wealthy. 2. I am trying to figure out why people cannot afford to eat. Throughout the year they seem to struggle with putting healthy food on the table3. I looked at cities that at one time succeeded and then failed. How government policies effect how people put food on the table.4. One solution to solve the problem of hunger is to raise minimum wage to $15.00 dollars an hour.5. In the United States where people live in luxury, the people who are unable to put food on the table, stand in charity lines, or on the corner with signs. Please help, I am homeless and hungry. Policies and charities that are set up to help the hungry do not always help, but they can hurt, everyone thinks that charities that are set up to feed the hungry is the answer. but the fact of the matter is if minimum wage were higher, we would not need the charity or government assistance. People do not want handouts; they just want an equal opportunity to support themselves and their families."
