I am a young hardworking female that has made great leaps in her industry. I decided to not go to school and jump straight into my career mostly for financial reasons. The problems i face for my future are quite dark…. To think that to live in CA you need to make about $150,000 to own a very MODEST home. For me to try and even rent an apartment I would need to pay the minimum of $1,500-$2,500 a month!
So a person making around $48,000 annually to even get their own place is completely impossible. This is something I struggle with understanding. How the heck are people my age able to even survive and start to build a family and or settle down?
