Rent Prices Continue to Climb in Major Cities Across the United States

Inflation is the number one reason that many Americans are struggling to afford rent in many cities around the world.

Our country has never seen so many people dying in the streets from the inability to support themselves due to a lack of jobs and resources.


The United States unemployment rate is at a ten year low with an average of 4.1, but many Americans continue to struggle to afford rent. This is primarily due to the influx of new jobs that pay less than cost of living in most major cities. There are more jobs, but they pay less than the needed amount of cover rent and additional expenses.

In many developing cities such as Denver, Nashville, Raleigh, Seattle, Portland, and many other locations are starting to see an increase in population.

Smaller cities were once able to provide jobs and resources to larger amount of citizens, but after years of outsourcing jobs to different countries, our country is left with trying to balance a difficult problem.

That problem stems from the political atmosphere of not voting for politicians that will put regulations on companies to prevent them from sending jobs to different countries to obtain larger amounts of revenue. 

If you want cheaper rent, it is time to start voting with your pocketbook instead of being influenced by ads targeted from foreign governments.

I’ve heard a phrase recently, ‘if the economy is not going to work for me, I don’t want it to work for anyone.’ This helps identify the problem of people from smaller cities being upset with the current economy, but rather than find reasonable solutions by voting for a party that would add regulations to corporations, they would rather see everyone suffer. This type of selfish behavior is one of the main reasons that the United States continues to hit roadblocks.
