roger: "..what response should competitive employment make, in response to these self inflicted obstacles?". I previously answered this question regarding leveling the playing field so we have a truly competitive meritocracy instead of this sham of one. And here is further detail on removing classist barriers so that classism does not perpetuate a systemic catch-22: http://poverty.suite101.com/article.cfm/classism

roger: "When the household gives birth to many more children than the household could possibly support or through carelessness loses job after job or incurs unnecessary debt my question to you would be: How nimble do you expect government to be and what response should competitive employment make, in response to these self inflicted obstacles?" I expect the government to be nimble enough to refrain from further evisceration of Roe v. Wade with laws that allow pharmacists to refuse to fill contraceptive prescriptions because of their religious beliefs -even in the case where pregnancy could have resulted for an 18 year old rape victim from Lancaster, PA. She was denied access to Plan B and traveling all the way to the nearest pharmacy was not tenable for her because she was poor and had no car. When abortion is kept legal and safe (and AFFORDABLE for poor women), when contraceptives are made available for those least able to afford to get pregnant (and then dumped by the co-conceiver); when more contraceptive options exist for women with pre-existing medical conditions who are currently unable to get ANY contraception - that is when you won't see as many poor women making the "poor choice" to have more kids than they can afford.
