To the editor:
This is in response to Melissa Wood’s letter. My, you are so judgmental. Not everyone is lazy as you think and there is a very serious housing issue here. Most of these jobs pay crap. Before you start judging me, I have never collected unemployment in my life. I have always worked, but I do see the struggles of people here in the valley. If you are lucky to find a rental, it does not meet the pay scale in the valley.
When employers start paying a decent wage and we get affordable housing maybe the workforce will come back. A lot of people have moved because of this.
Also, I saw someone paying with change for groceries and it was heart-breaking. Get off your high horse and stop judging people you do not know.
