My experience has been that I’ve been fortunate to get affordable housing but because I don’t have any other options, I stay when my landlord is treating me badly or my neighbors are bothering me. We need more housing that is designated for people at lower income levels, and developers need to stop building these high end luxury housing because that’s not helping. People can’t afford that unless they’re working three jobs. That’s not sustainable. People shouldn’t have to work three jobs to afford an apartment.
