If you think “professional recycling” sounds tiring, dead-end, and downright nasty, you’re right. Although John says it’s “good honest work,” he admits he’d gladly jump to a minimum wage job if given the opportunity. See, John used to be just like you, he never thought he’d become homeless. But thanks to our economic nosedive, John went from being a small business owner to a homeless can collector.

If you hear nothing else today, please listen to John’s closing thoughts.

    Again, this just shows how no one is immune from the possibility of homelessness. John had some valuable insights in finding solutions. For one, instead of knocking someone when they are already down and out, a few kind words can go a long way. But more than likely, people who make callous comments to the homeless are to self absorbed to care.

    There needs to be more affordable housing. If you lose your job then there needs to be need more protection. Companies can fire you for any reason. This is the richest country in the world COME ON; we can do so much better than this for our people. I am ashamed.
