Mubasher Warraich
Across America, the issue of housing affordability has crippled already low-income families by costing them nearly half of what they earn. Most homeowners who live in generally safe and well-groomed neighborhoods tend to forget the 12.3% or 39.7 million Americans live in poverty, precariously balancing the accumulation of money from various minimum wage jobs between payments for housing, expenses for food and water, education, and a health care plan.
