Who says they need to live close to their place of employment? Nobody is entitled to housing that is close to their place of employment.

Therefore they opt to sell drugs in their hoods destroying communities. And these are the same people on section 8 and welfare that me tax dollars go to? You got to be kidding me.

Despite their legal status of residence, I'd rather give my hard earned tax money to a Mexican that actually contributes to the working force in society and who actually has the desire to work and provide than to give it to some ignorant and arrogant, ghetto inner city drug dealer in form of a welfare check or section 8 voucher.

affordable housing + section 8 do not equal drug dealing lowlifes. the way you assume that it does is scary. if that illegal immigrant is sucking up all the city services like health care, police and fire protection ect, but paying very little taxes, if any and sending most of his check to mexico(for example)how is that good for the city or country?.....these days to be on welfare you have to work, either on your own or for the city and most people on section 8 work too...alot of people on section 8 were formerely homeless or domestic violence victims....believe me youd rather have these people in they'r own apt paying a portion of the rent than in the shelter system being totally supported by your tax dollars

Exactly. And who told them to drop out of school and become an uneducated and unqualified NYer to the point that they have to resort to accepting a minimum wage job?

They put it upon themselves and now they have to sleep in the bed they made.

So stop crying broke and stop blaming greedy business owners for the lack in wages. It's their fault, no one else. If you're unhappy, educate yourself so you can qualify for a higher paying job but until you do, stop complaining and pointing fingers. And if still not happy, then move...you can be easily replaced.

Don't forget I'm from the Bronx and work in the Bronx which has the highest concentration of ghetto, low income people in NY. My stereotype in general is 100% correct. If its not in their name, its under their baby's mama name or their mama's name. Ask Tyrone.
and lets not start with generalizations or stereotypes, criminals and people who scam the system come from all colors and backrounds.....Ask Bernie Madoff, Junior Gotti or Micheal Bloomberg

wow with that attitude it is evident that you see that the guy who sells u your newspaper, the guy that pumps your gas, the guy that rings up your groceries doesnt have a place in this city. well, to hell with it, replace them all with robots and maybe you'll be satisfied.

How do you know that this person won't be a citizen? You are assuming.
