$1,400 per month for 720 square feet. That is $16,800 a year. A person making $15 per hour working five days a week, 50 weeks a year makes $30,000 per year. Rent would be 56% of income.

The city seems to follow the trickle-down approach to affordable housing.

It is not immediately obvious to me why the wealthiest (by far) county in New Mexico should get a free gift of 3,000 acres from the feds. Los Alamos already exists as something of a world apart from its neighbors -- this would only accentuate this trend.
