Nneka Millette, 44, helps run a drop-in center for homeless youth in Brownsville, Brooklyn. But in the last few months, she said she’s found it impossible to keep the center staffed.
“I call people for jobs all the time and we have people who actually laugh at the salary,” she said. “That’s not ok. No one can survive off that. But the work still has to get done.”
