PODCAST – Helping Students Launch Careers in Long Term Services & Support

NHC has released its 2018 edition of “Paycheck to Paycheck,” an interactive online tool that allows users to research and compare rental and homeownership affordability challenges of workers in 81 occupations in 259 metro areas nationwide. 

The accompanying report highlights affordability challenges workers face in five job categories in the construction industry: carpenters; electricians; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) mechanics; maintenance workers and plumbers. We know we have an affordability crisis when the men and women who build our homes can’t afford to live in most of them.
