Thinking about all the workers out there struggling to pay rent, buy food, keep their lives going. Thinking about one of my sons who is struggling to find a job in this economy and who may very well be moving back home in the near future. He’s grateful he has a place to land if it comes to that, but it shouldn’t come to that. Not for him and not for other young people facing a bleak future. They should be able to live their lives on their own terms.
This is a disgrace and we must do better. Much better.

In nj it is $11 and will increase by a dollar each year until it reaches $15. It’s still not enough…most young people need roommates or have to live at home because they can’t afford rent
You’re right, that’s not nearly enough. Apparently, we now have the most young adults back home with their parents since the Great Depression.
