Out of touch

Very interesting that developers are still so out of touch with reality that they have the illusion a $400,000 house is housing for the ordinary worker.

It is very simple, there is no affordable housing on the Peninsula and rents are just about out of reach for the ordinary worker.

Businesses take note.

The worker you pay minimum or just above wages can’t afford to live here and so you are hard pressed to find workers, notwithstanding the claims of people like Gary Lunn.

Thank God I’m retired.
