So, what’s the big issue on the streets these days?

The Big Issue is a street newspaper/magazine published in several continents. It is written by professional journalists and was founded by John Bird and Gordon Roddick in September 1991 in the UK. It started in Australia in 1996 where it is produced fortnightly. It is sold on the streets by homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged people, who keep the profits from the magazines they sell. The vendors thus have employment and earn an income to give them a helping hand, and perhaps give them a chance to leave a life on the streets.
