Housing Affordability

This article sees the problem as largely regional, on the coasts. I tend to agree. The National Low Income Housing Coalition uses the housing you can afford on the minimum wage. That is unrealistic. The minimum wage was not intended to be a living wage, people can double up, there are usually two income earners in a household, and most people who start out on minimum wage do not stay on it for long.
