Homelessness is becoming an increasingly pressing issue for the U.S., as housing prices continue to rise and affordable housing becomes more and more difficult to find. Bigger metro areas, like New York, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. have the most prevalent homeless populations, but the issue occurs in smaller cities as well. In 2015, the Department of Housing and Urban Development estimated 7,620 people were suffering from homelessness in Hawaii, with Honolulu showing the highest per-capita homeless population in the U.S.
In Western societies, employment and self-esteem are very closely linked. Whenever someone asks you, “What do you do?” they’re really asking “What work do you do?” Work plays a central role in our identities and self-image, and also plays a huge role in our feelings of worth and value to society.
