the Big Issue

The Big Issue is an international organisation with its magazine "The Big Issue" in the centre. This magazine is produced by professional journalists and sold on the street by homeless people. The people on the street buy the magazine for 70 pence from the organisation and sell it for 1 £ 50, so they get 80 pence for each magazine they sell. The Big Issue gives them a chance to make an income.
In the magazine topics are often treated that are overlooked in the mainstream press.
