Data for Miami, FL rentals/jobs

The Center for Housing Policy published “Paycheck to Paycheck 2013: A Snapshot of Metropolitan Housing Affordability for Travel and Tourism Workers.” The study focuses on the difficulty travel and tourism related workers have finding affordable housing within the metropolitan areas in which they are employed. The jobs that were spotlighted were: auto mechanics, flight attendants, hotel front desk managers, housekeepers and wait staff. The workers in all levels were priced out of living near their place of employment due to the high-priced housing market. Housekeepers in particular face the worst challenge of finding affordable housing near their employment; flight attendants’ salaries are more on par with fair market prices however even their income isn’t enough to purchase a home in 25 major hub cities, including Boston, San Francisco and New York.
