Putting a Face on the Workforce Housing Problem in the United States

The lack of workforce housing affects millions of Americans each and every day.
From the piece:

“Jeff Emerick was born and raised in the scenic, tourist destination and resort area that is Blaine County‚Ķ. Emerick left Blaine County for a short while, only to return when he was offered a job at the Ketchum Fire Department.

The station requires its workers to live nearby, as an emergency could happen at any point. Unfortunately, Emerick could not afford the costly price of rent in Ketchum or surrounding cities.”
