Patronizing News Anchor's Rant About Young People Sparks Discussion

Young people definitely get some interesting criticism in the news, like all the times Millennials have Killed an Industry, so this doesn't seem like much of a departure. In an interview on housing rights in Britain, a news anchor and landlord "reported" that young people don't have the skills to rent, since they don't know how to change lightbulbs or do basic tasks. This ruffled some feathers among young people and tenants.

San Francisco has a reputation for high priced living.  Peter Berkowitz thought, why rent a room when I can build myself a Harry Potter cupboard to live in and pay much less to set up in someone's dining room? 



It's actually a pretty sweet setup with a cozy bed, a "skylight" for reading and nightlights all around the roof. He pays $400 a month for rent and the cost of the pod itself ended up being $1300, bring his total monthly costs to about $508 for a year according to his website



If you're in the San Francisco area and you would like to live in a professional quality fort that would make kid you super jealous, Berkowitz is available for consultations. He's charging a "very reasonable price" to help anyone who wants to build a pod for themselves and says he's, "I'm more interested in getting good at building pods than in making money at this point".

The National Low Income Housing Commission paints a rather bleak picture of housing affordability in the United States. The state which requires the least amount of hours at minimum wage in order to afford housing is a tie between West Virginia and Arkansas at 63 hours. That's just over a week and a half of a 40-hour work week. Sorry kids, looks like that fancy dinner at Applebees will have to wait until next month.
