How the fuck do people afford apartments in decent cities? Seriously what the fuck I live in a small village and I want to fucking leave. There's no college or training here. There's nothing.

The cheapest option is like 800/mo and that's with roommates. Like what the fuck you have to graduate college and get a good job before just to own a fucking small room?! Bull shit. Some bitch told me she moved to Boston and she has to pay 1100 for a room in the ghetto.

I live in Northern Virginia (DC area) and it's pretty much impossible to find anything under saaay $1,200/mo. If you don't have a degree, there's a good chance you're living at home into adulthood.

>>16553558
Is that 1200 for studio apartments or for roommate situations?

>into adulthood
Into your 20's I mean...

And those cities wonder why they have a homeless problem.

>>16553538
Just commute like every other poorfag.

Studio or 1 bedroom. Basically you can't get shit for less than that. I'd say you gotta make at least $2k/mo if you wanna live on your own here.

Rent prices are set by the market - AKA: What people are willing to pay for a place. Do you want the government to come in and artificially lower the rent prices to accommodate lower income people?
>>
>>16553584
Yes. Yes I do. At least for people disadvantaged like Mr who aren't black natives with section 8.
>>
Oh do poorfags ever get a 1br together and one person just sleeps in the living room?
>>
>>16553587
I suppose you'd also like McDonald's to pay their employees $15/hr? A "living" wage?
>>
>>16553594
No but I think people should at least be able to afford an apartment with more basic jobs like waiters, security guards, and shit. You should not have to go in debt and get a degree and jump through internship hoops just to own a small room. Not everyone has parents they can live with until they do all that shit.

Is the ghetto at least affordable?

Oh and i also think the government should fuck off. They shpouldnt be able to take income taxes from people who are living on their own on minimum wage. Its like 300 dollars a month just in taxes. It literally forces people to sell drugs and their bodies.
