Angie and Matt

At the time I interviewed Angie and Matt near St Louis, Missouri, they had been living in this small hotel room for eleven months.

Weekly rate hotels have become the new low-income housing replacing the massive housing projects we saw decades ago. This hotel was one of the better ones, many are dirty and are home to drug dealers, prostitutes, and gangs. Once in, because it’s hard to come up with moving costs, many people are stuck with no way to get into real housing.
