Austin's homeless are being paid $15 an hour to clean up the city

Homelessness is a massive problem in the United States. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Annual Homeless Assessment Report, as of 2018, there were around 553,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night.

Being made homeless can also quickly become a vicious cycle, with many places of employment requiring people to have a permanent address and expecting employees to maintain a level of cleanliness that may prove difficult.
