Rent is not too high

Dear Editor,

Frequently I hear the complaint, “rents are too high,” or “housing prices are too high.”
Are the people making these claims thinking clearly?
The reason housing costs are difficult for people to afford is often because wages are too low.
Wages are low because too few workers will organize to demand and receive fair pay.
Citizens hope the government will subsidize housing or control rents.
Be responsible: organize!
