America: The New Working Class, And What You Can Do About It

Asking to remain name and genderless the individual continues, "Well, what am I to do about it? And where are my hands. I don't see my neighbors."

The housing crisis seems to affect so many Americans, but rarely do you hear the opinions of the coastal working class like mentioned above. In this short opening series of #RantFare, we'll coin new voices during the exchange and share where you can absolutely go with it.

Are we surrounding ourselves with the proper insulation needed to care for ourselves to mellow our feelings of angst? Check out the Pew chart. Something to think about. Subscribe!
