What Businesses Can Do To Help

What business can do to help:

 

“Even in areas that are recognised as wealthy, there are families or individuals who have fallen behind, policymakers must understand how hard it is to escape from such circumstances. It is not inertia that keeps the unemployed immobile: it is simply that, without help, they are trapped.”
