If a person works diligently for 50+hours a week should they be able to get out of poverty?

50 hours a week on minimum wage? It depends on where they live. If it's a town/city where the cost of living isn't high, they might just get by.

Rising tax does not mean the end of opportunity. 50 hours per week is probably a SHORT week for business owners or entrepreneurs. It is long enough to earn a living if spent carefully.

They should but doesn't mean they will...

Hypothetically, yes. But it really doesn't matter how much someone works/earns. If they handle their finances irresponsibly, they will never get ahead.

Depends on what they spend their money on.

Theoretically, but it's not always the case, especially if they are getting paid minimum wage.

Not with what I'm hearing about taxes

I believe they should but they don't always make it. With all the taxes, and more likely, they may still be living in poverty.

What's sad is that's not always the case. 44% of homeless people are employed.

Maybe. It depends on other spending habits

"Should"? Yes. Will they? Probably not.
