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...

    So sad!! God bless these people to get larger places to live!! I am at least glad to see that they are in good spirits and not giving up!! I do hope that President Biden will fix these inequalities that we have in our country!!

    Sadly I saw this in 1989 when I travelled from Australia to the US. I worked in San Fran and homelessness was rife but not to the extent it is now. I knew back then the US was not the greatest country in the world. Amazing and hospitable people let down by their government and corporate conglomerates. It was government propaganda spoon fed to Americans. No one can survive on minimum wage. Expecting people to live off tips is ridiculous and expecting others on minimum wage to pay tips is ridiculous. Raise minimum wage. It’s companies corporate responsibility to pay their workers appropriately and provide health care and superannuation. Capitalism has become cannibalism. I thank god I live in Australia and feel so sorry for many Americans who are struggling like this. There is enough wealth to go around. It’s simple provide free health care, raise minimum wage, provide affordable housing and education and daycare options and voila you are a first world country like Sweden, Finland, Australia, Norway and New Zealand. It’s not hard but then again when greed is the driver sadly many will Continue to suffer

    I started to freak out before the end of that clip. I just could not do it. I'd have to take my chances on the streets. I'm blown away by the strength and adaptation of this woman and all the other people living like that and being grateful.
