On the basis of labor wages. Some sociologists, especially those writing in the s and s, have tended to explain poverty by referring to people’s moral failings, fecklessness or dependency cultures.

Others have argued that poverty can be better understood as a result of the ways in which resources and opportunities are unequally distributed across society.
