Muskelprotz saidI 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.
