what are the activities that can lead to social exclusion?
-ʻcity 3ʼ
-minimum wage jobs, not working at all
-disadvantage in social, economic, or political activity by individuals, households,
spacial areas or groups
-multiple levels of exclusion
-social economic, and institutional processes by which this disadvantage comes about
and outcomes or consequences of exclusion for individuals, groups, or communities
