Nurses cannot afford a house, so what?
Tim Crawford, group economist at Halifax, said: "Housing affordability continues to deteriorate... and it is now clearly not a problem confined to the south of England. Nurses face the most difficulties climbing on to the housing ladder but all key worker occupations are likely to struggle." He added: "The Government's key worker schemes are providing some relief but given recent trends there would be benefits in broadening their reach" What!? If you give subsidies prices go even higher!!! Maybe we should build more houses... shouldn't we??
