Nobody should be homeless on that big fucking island
I don't get it, there is demand there why isn't there a building boom?
Missing point in the article, I think. I live in a coastal city. People are living in tents near my office due to not being able to afford a rental property any longer. As far as anyone can tell, people are turning their rentals into AirBnB (or related services) to make fat stacks. Meanwhile, the people who would have lived in those houses are now stuck. Some long term rental remains, but it is much more expensive than it used to be, and the support the government offers would never cover it. Hooray capitalism. Meanwhile, tourism is going well, which is great, because tourists have places to stay...only...locals don't.
But they have great healthcare.
Rich people are pushing them into homelessness. Let’s blame who is responsible.
Same thing is affecting mostly everyone else in the world living near cities.
I actually agree with what this article is trying to push but the way it is written makes me want to disagree with it for no reason. Comments like "for reasons outside her control" have no use in decent reporting.
