Ruk Digest 4/10

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1. There Is A Looming Housing Rental Problem And It's Scary

Household renting is on the rise, where currently 37% of households in the U.S are renting.

And here is the looming problem:

The amount of people that are Rent Burdened is VERY high.

(Being rent burdened means that more than 30% of your income is going towards rent and utilities)

How high are we talking about you ask, well take these things as examples:

50% of San Francisco area tenants are Rent Burdened.

49% in the DC area.

And the National Metro Area average is 53%!!

2. Israel Has Come Up With A New Compensation Structure For Banking CEO's

Basically it's capping a CEO's compensation to a maximum of 44 times the company's lowest paid workers. 

That might still sound ridiculously high, but in the US that average is at nearly 300 times!!!

3. This Artist Turned A Desert Into A Sureal Fairytale

I absolutely love this idea!

Thought of the Week


We all have battles we are fighting

I saw this today written on a sign that a homeless man was holding at an intersection in Rockville, MD. 

And I just loved it. 

I encourage you to really think about this phrase.

Look at the people around you, your family, your friends, everyone has a battle they are fighting. 

Thank you for reading!

Be Happy and Keep Learning!
