    “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.

    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.

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

    Along with both San Francisco and Oakland.
