South Florida has an affordability crisis. Unlike other major cities in the U.S., where paychecks have kept up with growing living costs, the wage disparity in Miami-Dade continues to climb. Nearly 65 percent of households are struggling to get by, according to the United Way.
Wage increases have remained relatively stagnant over the past two decades in Miami-Dade, while everything keeps getting more expensive — housing, insurance, parking, restaurants, the price of a Dolphins tickets, even highway tolls.
