Make housing affordable again for moderate- and middle-income working-class individuals too»

Since taking office, mayor de Blasio has worked hard to bring attention to the need for more affordable housing in the city.

However, as ambitious as de Blasio's efforts may be, they focus primarily on providing assistance to extremely low-income households. There is no doubt that these low-income individuals need assistance; however, there needs to be a greater amount of attention and resources dedicated to providing affordable housing to moderate- and middle-income working-class individuals. This is the only way to bring fairness back to New York City. More than that, if the needs of New York City's working class are not met, they will move out of the city, resulting in the loss of both intellectual and economic capital.
