Employees who earn less may consider taking loans to support their wages and by so doing if they become addicted to borrowing; gradually the loans eat into their earnings, therefore, causing them to spend more than they earn monthly; this is a major distraction to workers.
Poverty as a Tool
It is impossible for everyone to be an entrepreneur, which means to make ends meet; some people must work for someone and no employer would choose to share the profit 50/50 with their employees.
In fact, most employers would rather pay their employees low wages to keep secure their survival dependency.
Hence, companies need workers and if these workers get rich after being employed it means that they are likely to stop working for some time, therefore, disrupting the smooth running of the companies.
To a large extent, poverty is used as a tool to control people.
Young people in these modern days rush into marriage too early in their career without considering whether or not their earnings will be enough to cater for their new life journey.
Others go to the extent of making children when in fact they cannot support such a huge family size at the early stage of their lives.
Marginalization of the Minority Group
This group of people feels the pain of poverty the most. This is because they cannot fight for their right nor speak to issues concerning them. Others are even afraid to ask for help whenever they need it. So long as the fear of asking for help exist, the cycle of poverty will continue to exist also.
