Rising rents create the “homeless.” If developers are going to construct housing and drive the rents up, the process should be yoked to providing low-income housing for the very people they are hurting. Just because a tenant is already paying rent, does not mean the tenant is able to pay even more rent. Usually a tenant is already stretched financially to make ends meet and sometimes has already given up food for medication. When a tenant cannot afford medication and food, the tenant has hit the bottom and will be on the streets, but does anyone care?
