Interesting “statewide survey of annual wages”.
I hope they do a different survey when it comes to seeing the need for affordable housing in certain areas.
Take the top 3 fast food restaurants in a town and figure 40-50 employees at each place making 7,25 an hour., Average that out and see how many people will be able to continue paying rent at places that continue to raise their rentals.

This weekend I saw an ad in the paper advertising apartments for rent:
3 bedroom- $1150
There might be other apartments out there that are less than this and maybe there are some that are more. But this was the only ad I saw.
How does someone making $7.25 an hour find an apartment in this town with out getting help from the tax-payers?
A homeless shelter isn’t the answer.
If they were allowed a 30 day stay there is still a shortage of apartments that are affordable to many people.
