An interview with a Homelessness Advocate: Richard Troxell: Looking Up At The Bottom Line


This interview should be especially interesting to our followers!

It’s an interview with an author, advocate & overall champion of the homeless.

After listening to his interview please check out his website, House the Homeless!

He has some very interesting perspectives on wages & pay for the homeless, challenging the recent Housing First initiatives of the Obama administration as well!

From the Wayne Hurlbert BlogTalkRadio site, about this show:

Homelessness advocate and Founder and Director of Legal Aid for the Homeless, and President and Founder of House the Homeless Inc, Richard Troxell shares his concept of a Universal Living Wage. Using what he describes as a “continuum of flexibility” for each community,the goal is to ensure that every person can afford a reasonable apartment in the city. Richard Troxell has worked both with and against city councils, and the result has been that cooperation has been the most effective technique for everyone. Richard believes that the minimum wage is too low to rent a one bedroom apartment. His research points to the Universal Living Wage as a solution to homelessness while also providing additional benefits to the economy. The proposal doesn’t cost taxpayers any money, and recognizes states rights and individuals. Richard describes many of the current approaches to homelessness as both counter-productive and expensive for taxpayers. All proceeds from the book go toward ending economic homelessness.
