Living on a Pension

People on welfare and disability pensions have nothing left over after paying rent and food. Even though year after year, the landlords bump up the rents and food prices go through the roof and money inflates, their income stay completely flat for decades at a time. The only thing they can do is eat less and less food and lower and lower quality food. Once they get down to Ramen noodles and wieners because Kraft Dinner is too expensive, where do we expect them to go? People compete for scraps in dumpsters.
