Evan Crosby | Contributor

For the last few decades, many people have been moving from the more expensive cities in Southern California, particularly Los Angeles, into the less expensive cities of San Bernardino and Riverside in the Inland Empire.

  1. These listings appear to be only for students. I hope one day that all third-generation people can be provided with the opportunity to just rent based on their income and not call it Low Income housing. There is such a stigma attached to anything titled Low Income. Across the United States, government needs to be able to provide housing based soley on third generation income, the same way as students and Veterans.

  2. who’s in on the SCHEME? It seems that the Government should have control over the rental issues. These landlords are over doing it as far as rent goes. No one can afford $1,200, for a studio apartment, $1,500 and up for a one and two bedroom. It is ridiculous. Doesn’t the Government have a say so in this matter. People need housing, that’s why we have so many people stealing, robbing, and beating up each other. The stress of high prices for food, gas, rent the daily
    essentials we need and can’t afford is enough to make anyone lose their dignity. It doesn’t help to stop the SNAP program either. We are human beings, we need to eat. Everything is ALL wrong, and it starts at the dambed POLITICIANS. We the people must act now, speak up, let them know what’s on your minds and how you’re going to handle it. This is getting out hand.
