"I am a part-time student at the University of Dhaka and I can barely hold my head above water financially."
My income is not enough for food, clothing and housing. I live in a small room with four other people. I can't afford to use public transport. I also have very little to eat. Employers don't see how high the cost of living is. The salaries they offer are too low. Bangladesh is actually very rich in resources. But political chaos prevents it from developing.
