I'm not sure exactly what you're getting at, grassroots. In any case, Maggie need not fear that these units are intended for working people only - they're not. They're intended for seniors and disabled as the consortium's proposal states. Battaglia, Marini, and other apologists, are of course neatly exploiting the notion of the "deserving poor" with their talk of how this development is for 'working poor', and downplaying the fact that it's actually for seniors and disabled. You have to wonder why they don't have the courage to cop to the truth and defend the idea that poor people who are not able to work are equally deserving.
