In fact I’m not surprised at all.
When I was working for a regional daily newspaper I covered a story in which a woman tried to sell a kidney – any way she could – in order to make ends meet after being (wrongfully, in her opinion) dismissed by her previous employer. Desperate times; desperate measures.
Despicable that it’s possible for government policy – and have no doubt, it IS government policy that is driving so many people into poverty – that is making such a situation possible.
