Socialists believe in government entitlements, and Catholics believe in charity. Many people believe that it is not the government's job to provide food and services to the poor, something that at one time was only done by the Church. To hold both viewpoints would be rather difficult....... Jurgis was spending a portion of his pay in order to keep his job (lodgings). Eating at the free-lunch counter enabled him to save money he would not have been able to save.
