Do you think that people have a hard time finding affordable housing in Lawrence?

Of course Lawrence is expensive. It is true that it could be worse but I have a feeling that worse isn't far away with large companies like First Management buying up all the properties and jacking up the rent, and not including ANY utilities in that price. Oh lets not forget the woooonderful service, in case any of you haven't rented from them, count yourselves lucky. I'm a college student and I have to commute to Topeka just to get a wage around 8.00 an hour which doesn't even cover my rent, books, and school, and forget food. Financial Aid isn't an option for Middle Class students because our parents "make too much." WE NEED A LIVING WAGE!!!!!
