What's being described here, yet again, is a stratified society. Much like health care, courts, transportation or education, political representation is far better the richer you get. In short, you are considered a "person" to the extent that you have money - and your ability to get money in the future is highly dependent on that.

Having lived and stayed in both very poor and very rich communities, I can tell you that this does not go un-noticed in poor ones. People get very tired of being neglected and looked down upon, and sooner or later, give up entirely on the system. Given some of the abuse (welfare, city workers, police etc) I've seen around the North End, it really isn't surprising.
