    “You can’t even contemplate getting into the housing market here,” Hancock said. “And I don’t mean just service workers, but highly skilled professionals. The tech elite are having a hard time affording reasonable housing in Silicon Valley. That makes it difficult for employers to recruit.”

    Operators of a San Jose U-Haul business say one of their biggest problems is getting its rental moving vans back because so many are on a one-way ticket out of town.

    The sooner it's sold to Mexico, the better for America.

    The tech industry has resulted in pushing up real estate values so high that most people can't afford it. The city is losing their middle and upper middle class. What is happening now is capitalism....supply and demand. I would not want to live in any of those places that people are moving to though. They are much more affordable but the weather is awful in those places....not that San Francisco has great weather either.

    I live in Southern California and have been casually looking for other options to cut my long-term expenses down. But several factors come into play, not just cost: weather, climate change, down sizing, large great room and office, how beautiful the area is, etc.

    It has become even more so in the last 10 years. There used to be middle class areas within the city. Those areas have pretty much all been gentrified.

    I don't think it's likely to change until there's some sort of tech bust or other calamity.

    The high cost of living in SF and LA is not the cause of the homeless problem. It's because the state and local government policies are set up to "protect the rights of the homeless" and offer "sanctuary" to illegal aliens and that is why you have these garbage strewn homeless tent cities everywhere you look now and homeless people urinating and defecating wherever they please. Just last night a homeless encampment was the cause of a fire near the 710 freeway.

    It's clear that our state and local government officials here are so radical left that they have become advocates for those who don't pay taxes, and opposed to the interests of those who DO pay taxes.

    Most of them probably live in gated communities too, which is the ultimate hypocrisy. Come out of your safe space gated communities and live out here with the rest of us to see what your misguided policies have inflicted on us.

    What those who live in gated communities don't have to deal with - this scene is now becoming commonplace all over LA and Orange counties:

    Add Los Angeles to the shit hole cities list. When Democrats control everything, this is the result:

    There will always been homeless. Homelessness is a very complicated issue for multiple reasons: down on their luck, healthcare costs, cost of living, mental illness, desire to live outside, etc. That being said, Los Angeles increased its sales tax recently in order to help the homeless. It is creating a fund worth a few billion dollars to try and help people. I live next to a national forest and there have always been homeless living in the forest next to me. The police clear them out once in a while with the help of organizations that help the homeless and the majority end up coming back the day after the police move them out.
