Black, Latino Communities Spending Almost Half Their Incomes on Rent

 03/31/2017 - 06:17
 In cities like Los Angeles, renters in white communities spend 50 percent of their income on rent — well above the recommended 30 percent, but still far less than renters in Hispanic neighborhoods, who pay a premium of 63 percent.

Renters living in predominantly Hispanic or black neighborhoods have to spend more of their income on rent than those in white communities. Devoting nearly half of one’s income to rent each month makes economic mobility that much harder as well.

Even before five o'clock in the afternoon, dozens of women with posters, megaphones, and pink caps were being seen walking downtown. The meeting was in Logan Square, in the heart of Philadelphia. The occasion? Well, that depends on the perspective: for an unaware bystander (who generally has no perspective), it was one more celebration of International Women's Day.
