Human Rights: Article 22

Human rights were passed the 10th of December 1948. The authors of this declaration wanted o protect all the people of the world. One of the articles, article 22, says that everyone has the right to social security, economic, social and cultural rights. Many people can benefit from those rights. But not everybody.
Recently in a French newspaper, an article was published. In
France, and maybe in other countries too, some college students do not have enough money to pay for their studies and for basic needs as food, accommodation, clothes, etc., Many students live without enough money to survive. So they have to find a job. Finding a job is not as simple as everybody thinks. Having a job and studying at the same time is, most of the time, a problem. A lot of students have found out the solution: prostitution. In fact, some of them usually prostitute themselves. Although being illegal nowadays, prostitution helps a lot with economic problems. The French newspaper demonstrated that students who prostitute themselves work
at home or during parties. Finding and helping those people is difficult because of they work alone and do not
have a proxenete.
Of course, prostitution is more important in many other
countries, but this news paper demonstrate that apart from being one of the richest nations in the world, France has economic problems and does not pay enough attention to students.
So, should we think that human rights are not always respected? If it happens, which are the consequences? Maybe everybody should think about that or not? And you, what do you think?
