Poverty in Mexico<br />Half the population in Mexico lives in poverty, mostly half of them also live in extreme poverty.<br />Poverty means living on less than $1.25 a day.<br />They mostly eat the food that goes in the garbage.<br />Sometimes they don’t eat anything at all in a whole day.<br />
Environmental and Social impacts<br />In Mexico, they also are unable to talk or communicate with people around different cities or different places.<br />The government can’t help them because also the government sometimes lacks ways of communication or causes that they can’t help the poor. <br />The cause is bad and corrupt leadership in the government.<br />
The poverty rate measured through consumption increases from 25% to 33.5%, and the extreme poverty rate from 10.58% to 16%, given the increase in food prices.<br />
The housing in Mexico is also very shocking. Half of the Mexicans don’t have houses. They live on the ground near trees, were there is shade. <br />Some of the rich people share houses with the poor. They at least give them beds or give them a room for the whole family to stay.<br />
Political and Economic impacts<br />A Mexican poo8r person said that, "Our money just doesn't go far enough,” <br />In a year, near 6,300 people died from poverty in Mexico. <br />They obviously don’t go to school. Only 72% of them go to school and are educated, this shows how poor they are.<br />
Solutions<br />Education because if women are educated they will take care of their children better in food and health.<br />If children are educated they have a chance of a better life or at least learn a skill that they can use to work with.<br />More help for farmers, especially small farmers, so they will not leave the land and come to cities to look for work.<br />Birth control because if people have smaller families they will not be so poor.<br />
