Shanghai, an international city in China, is connected with the world.
However, Shanghai can only afford a house with a monthly rent of 7 US dollars. It is even just a cabinet, but it is cheap and the poor can at least escape the heavy rain.


In areas of the west coast especially, in the USA, where there are lots of fresh off the boat chinese & other asians, I have heard of this type of space renting but I think while unfortunate & precarious a practice it helps keep young people off the streets & is more a kindness done by the landlord to help. They are aware of the homeless situation & often traveled here themselves from that foreign country too. 🤷‍♀️
