Nadina Monroe has one week to get out of her home. The 27-year-old rents a hotel room at the Motel 6 in south Charlotte.
“It's not much of a home, but it’s a home to me,” she cried.
Monroe is an advertising student at Central Piedmont Community College and works at a local plastics company. She said her income was too unstable to get a leased apartment so she picked the hotel because it’s close to bus stops, as she has no car.
Like a few others across Charlotte, she has been told by a hotel manager that her room has been booked for the Democratic National Convention starting the week of September 2. She claimed she had a two week notice.
“I feel like it’s a great opportunity for Charlotte, but I feel like it wasn't properly thought through,” she said. “There’s nothing out there. No system, no program. There's nothing out there to help me.”
