California's housing crisis

For these Californians, "home" is a 32-square-foot pod, an RV or a car. In the wealthiest state of the U.S., now under mandatory stay-at-home restrictions, the housing crisis has left many behind...

    I love how woke social justice Californian dems dont want to create more housing because they dont want their house drop in values. When it comes down to it they are just as selfish and pointless like the "corrupted" Republicans.

    SUPPLY. The Govt need to step in and build public housing to ease the demand. Public housing that are made affordable. In Singapore, to own the cheapest apartment, all you need is combined income of $1500 (US$1100). Unfortunately the US Govt is in bed with the wealthy and corporations. Just finished watching Selling Sunset and I can’t help but think why would the millionaires or billionaires buy houses there with so many homeless people on the street?

    It’s a little misleading to say they only have 32 sq ft. There are common areas they can be in and not relegated to the pod. That said, the housing situation sucks in just about any major west coast city.

    Kinda similar to Canada. Before, Toronto was the popular city to move to & live at. It was the more expensive city too. Now, it's Vancouver, the west coast. Vancouver's housing cost is ridiculous.. example; 400sqft 1 bedroom apartment suite can be on market for sale for as high as $700,000 depending on area & age of condo. 30+year old condos; $400,000. Rent: $1500-2000 The popularity of Vancouver brought in many foreign property buyers; build condos & sell for jacked up prices. Which in turn made Toronto housing cheaper to try to attract people. Vancouver is slowly becoming the Canadian version of San Francisco or LA. Also with bad homeless problem. I want to see changes too. Either pay has to go up to compensate for housing costs + living costs. Or housing costs needs to drop. Only the rich can afford a house in Vancouver.... a tiny house, easily $2,000,000. Nicer house that's decent size; $5million or more
