Undoubtedly, it is the government’s responsibility to subsidizes those who are poverty-stricken or are in urgent need, for example, the elder lacking the ability to work, young parents with kids, or temporarily unemployed people. In terms of the priority in financial support, it pays to give precedence to those old people over the others.
To begin with, the old, who are unable to work and over 70 years old, will face more challenges and difficulties with the lack of financial support from the government. 【中心句】To be specific, due to their advanced age, they neither enter the job market to seek a new job nor continue their former job career to receive a regular income.【否定平列】 In this case, their lives will become a nightmare or even chaos since both the necessities of daily life and various kinds of bills from hospital or landlord are not affordable for them. In contrast, the young couple with children and the jobless people are still possible to seek a job and support their family or their own lives if they keep hunting and adapt themselves to fierce job market accordingly, which can not be seen in those old people.
Secondly, the young parents with children should not be given the priority, compared with the old people, as under the heavy burden of family financial pressure, they are hopefully motivated to either acquire the up-to-the-minute knowledge or update their professional skills in order to survive by landing a well-paid job. 【中心句】Therefore, they are able to provide their family members with better material life and their kids with excellent education resources. Take my older brother as an example. After getting married and becoming a father with two kids, he found it difficult to make both ends meet if holding down his current job as a real estate agent. As a result, he attended the online school to enhance this profession skills and sharpen his communication skills, with the purpose to close the business deal with his client successfully. It is this valuable experience that not only improves his marketable skills but also helps him climb the corporate ladder.【强调句型】
Finally, those lose their job temporally are the last one to be allowed to enlist the financial support from the government because they are often insured by the former companies and therefore endowed with the financial insurance to cover this whole issue under the protection of law.【中心句】 Hence, the unemployment are less likely to ruin their normal lives permanently. In addition, these people are often provided free training courses, which are organized by the government, to meet the current job market need, with the hope to land a new job more rapidly.
In conclusion, compared to those who still possess the ability to work, like young couples with kids or jobless people, government are supposed to finance the old people above the working age without second thought.
