  THE TAPESCRIPT

I think my government should spend more money on social work. We spend so much on weapons and things that don’t help people. It’s sad this happens when there are so many people who need help. I want the tax I pay to help old people who have no money or one-parent families. If more money was spent on people who need help, our society would be better. I always thought that’s what a government was for – to help people. There should also be more social workers. I’m sure if governments asked people, they would say spending more money on social work is a good thing. It seems as though social work is becoming less important. Just look at the number of homeless in the streets of the world’s richest countries.
