Not in my experience. While it is absolutely true that poverty is a factor, working poor versus welfare collecting poor makes little difference. A little while ago we actually made a chart of every tenant we'd ever had, in an exercise to determine the best and worst sorts of tenant. We applied every variable we could think of: age, race, sex, source of income, single or couple, kids or not, pets or not, etc etc etc. Result: no pattern. The only definite trends were that people on ODSP are great tenants in all of our cases. A young black guy with a job can be awesome and dependable or a total flake; an older white guy can be a crazy bastard or a solid investment; single mothers can be the best or worst - and everything in between. We've had junkies of every age and form of income. And the opposite. Oh, one more pattern. Cats SUCK.
