This past year has changed the lives of so many renters in the Bay Area since the tech companies have taken over.
Corporations owning huge apartment complexes are jacking up the rents so high just because they can - they don't give a damn about we, who have lived here for many years and worked in the jobs that help keep the Bay Area going.
We deserve a decent place to live without being gouged for high rents that we can't afford and will have to leave this area. People who own duplexes are jacking the rents up too high too. Who is going to cut their hair and clean their houses and gardening? Does any one care out there?
Greed is driving people like me away from a life of living here after 52 years. Where am I going to go? I can't start over somewhere else at this point in my life.
Please help! I know these owners want to make all the money they can, but where does it stop? Do they understand that most of us can't afford to live here because of this greed?
