At the same time as wages have been stagnant for nearly 40 years, housing prices in California and the Bay Area are climbing exponentially, making home prices about 2.5 times the national average. Congressman DeSaulnier understands the direct impact that soaring housing prices have on our community – hundreds of thousands of low and middle-income workers have moved to other states and many more, including millennials, are unable to buy a home. Mark continues to fight for Californians to make housing more affordable, stave off homelessness, and provide greater opportunities for housing.
