    Living wage for ALL industries.
    Better access/affordability to healthcare of all types.
    Decriminalize marijuana and stop the privatization of prisons.
    Lower tuition rates for state run universities.
    Higher prices for "junk" food and fair prices for healthy alternatives.
    Obliterate institutionalized racism and de-stigmatize being "poor".

      I think these ideas would actually work! We are getting there, but progress is slower than a turtle.

    EDUCATION, EDUCATION, EDUCATION! Stop expecting those who can't even afford to educate themselves to be able to turn into thriving middle class. Education is a MUST! Education has been proven time and time again to reduce dependency on welfare and other government funded programs.
    Education is by far not an end all type fix, but it would certainly put a dent in the problem. It's also amazing for teaching self responsibility.
