It is the same in Sweden.
Some people have a small income, but still have a good standard of living as they work/ed and got what it takes to have a good standard of living and know how to handle money.
Others cannot deal with money at all. They are broke in the middle of the month.
I know someone who stopped working when he was between 40-45 lived with and off his mother. And that for over 20 years till his mother died. His pension is very small, but gets money from the state for his apartment and money from his sister for luxery. Should I feel sorry for him? Never he is so lazy and not even ashamed of it. And 100% healthy.
We have homeless people in Sweden too, usually alcoholics or drug addicts.
They do get help in many ways from the state, which in reality means I have already shared my "wealth" with them. They need it as they often are sick as alcoholism is an illness.
