A Roof with Rules

A shelter resident in the U.S. recently got angry that even with below freezing temperatures he had to leave at 7 a.m. The shelter is typically closed during the day so clients learn the discipline of finding jobs or taking care of personal business.

Shelter workers said that if clients take a job that is available, it may require them to work in bad weather conditions. And they need to learn the discipline of work even in bad weather.

What do you think?
