Jolyn Chia's curator insight, January 24, 2014 9:47 PM

In this article,i can see that people are being drove to work elsewhere as they are lack of money, taxes increasing can cause the poors to worry as they do not have enough money to buy food for their children or buy enough clothing to keep themselves warm. For the rich, they might be happy that the poors are driven elsewhere to work. The rich and the poor are both the same, we're all humans, they have no rights to look down on the poors just because they are rich. And also, increasing the taxes, forces people to go somewhere else to work, causing their parents to separate from their childrens as they have to go somewhere else to find a new place to sell their goods. Without income,the whole family will suffer. I wonder if the rich ever thought of lending a helping hand ti the poors? or did they utter a single word when taxes was increased?
