High Rent

June 29, 2018 – A report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition shows that workers in New Mexico cities, especially in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, have to work more than one job in order to afford an average two-bedroom apartment. Finding affordable housing is notably hard for single parents, especially if they are working minimum wage jobs. Gene Grant and the Line panelists debate the issue of adequate housing in New Mexico.
