How do low-income people survive in Los Angeles?

Most of the jobs I'm interested in pay 

$2,000/month or less, which is not 

even enough to rent a studio apartment. 

I was told I can rent a room in someone 

else's house for $500/month; 

but is that really sustainable? 

To be honest, I'm considering working 

from home in computer-support so I 

can get the he-- out of Los Angeles!!

Is that a good idea?  

I can get a one bed-room apartment 

in Redding, CA for $500/month. Or, 

maybe even one in Lake Tahoe for 

$800/month. 

Your thoughts?

    They share a home. They have more than one job. Lots of ways. But usually it's that more than one person works, and they split the cause of housing. Some, of course, are homeless.

    With difficulty.  LA is an expensive place to live.  That's one reason there's such a big homeless problem there.  Even some people who have steady jobs are effectively priced out of the housing market.
