Have and Have Not relates to class issues, specifically the enlarging gulf between the lower and upper classes.  Grocery carts are significant objects for the dual-life they live.  On one hand, they are mass-produced items intended to promote a lifestyle of mass consumerism – used as a vehicle for purchasing goods at the shopping center.  Yet the moment they leave a store parking lot, their connotation becomes vastly different.  A shopping cart becomes a vehicle of survival, becoming a person’s home and a means of livelihood – specifically, gathering recyclables in return for money.  The perceived visual materials of the upper class are applied to a very impoverished way of life as a way of pointing out disparity.
