Adulthood delayed by rising rents

Youth Radio reporter Desmond Meagley feels ready to live on his own… until he gets a reality check from browsing available Oakland rentals. His situation is compounded by lack of salary prospects. “[My] roommates and I wouldn’t even be considered unless we made over three times the posted rent. My heart sank. Students like me can’t get jobs that pay that much.” Is it realistic for youth in Oakland to hope for affordable housing? Hear his commentary on Youth Radio.
