In reference to Sunday’s article about homeless families experiencing discrimination in the housing market, I was struck by a comment by the unemployed father of three. (See: “Looking for homes, finding closed doors”)

I wonder if the solution to at least part of the family’s predicament can be found in the father’s own words describing his search for employment: “I don’t want to do something I’m not passionate about.”

I don’t believe most of the workforce can afford to provide for themselves and their families by only working at what we are “passionate about.”
