Charles Tureaud asks the community…How can we end POVERTY?
“Small business is the key. We need more programs to help small business, because that’s who is suffering and that’s the backbone of our economy. Most of these jobs come from small business. We can bail out Wall Street and the banks. We need incentives, and small business don’t have access to credit, they can’t expand their businesses or keep up with their payroll. They are also having to lay people off.” — Debbie Johnson, 25-year barber/stylist
“If we as a people would love one another as we love ourselves, we would have no poverty. Share to love. One love!” — Leslie Williams
“We must better educate ourselves on economic and financial literacy. Reduce greed, selfishness and materialism.” — Ted Watkins
“I think we need more small business advocacy. I cook in the kitchen and I feel bad for people who don’t have jobs. — Kenneth Ray Flowers, 23-year cook at MGM Mirage
“Anybody who didn’t have an opportunity to get an education, help make it possible for them to finish.” — Mike P, radio personality
