Inside the home of Daniel Salaz, who works as a plumber at Texland Estates. Salaz, 29, earns $10.00 hour as a plumber and lives in Lubbock, where the cost of housing is far lower than in Midland. He struggles to pay the monthly rent and utilities on his four-room house, which he shares with his mother, her boyfriend and four other siblings. His room, pictured here, has holes in the walls and lacks heating and insulation.
