MAKE AUSTIN AFFORDABLE AGAIN

This petition had 47 supporters


Most people living within the Austin City Limits are not able to afford housing off of their single income. Due to the constant expansion of our city the property taxes and rates keep increasing but as a citizen working a 40 hour work week I would not be able to afford my $1,100 rent on my one bedroom apartment if I weren't married and sharing the expense with another person. The minimum wage should be increased to reflect the growth of our city and make it easier for native austinites to keep their homes, afford the rent and live within city limits. Other large cities have adjusted accordingly; it's time for Austin to re-evaluate.
