Not a lie or exaggeration. And please, why do you have to resort to calling me a name? Why is it that merely talking about the homeless situation will cause you to label me a "Trumpeteer"? Where did Trump come into the conversation?

You're taking only the total number of homeless with disregard to population size. Here are the top three in total homeless and look at the population differences:

NYC Population: 8,538 million, Homeless: 76,501, Rate: 896 per 100,000
LA Population: 3,976 million, Homeless: 55,188, Rate:1388 per 100,000
Seattle Population: 704,352, Homeless: 11,643, Rate:1653 Homeless per 100,000

You're also ignoring the increase rate of the homeless, which for Seattle is 44% for the last two years.
Thanks from Sabcat

Homelessness follows real estate prices,as prices go up so does homelessness.

Then everyone is not happy and highly paid as Skews claimed if they can't even afford a trailer.

But for your theory:

San Francisco Population: 864,816, Homeless: 6858. Rate: 793 per 100,000

SF median home price: $1.610,000, Homeless rate: 793 per 100,000
Seattle median home price: $777,000, Homeless rate: 1653 per 100,000

Homes in SF are more than twice as much as Seattle, but SF has less than half of the homeless rate that inflicts Seattle.

Where there are lots of people who want high paying jobs, a few of whom have even finished high school. Not to mention several with some junior college.
Of which, the high tech sector in CA. is bailing out of this state, which is exactly the same reasons it will happen Washington. But hey, keep flooding this country with indigent, uneducated, unskilled immigrants and illegal aliens.

Lets tax soda so to detour people from drinking soda. Lets tax cigarettes to stop people from smoking. Let's tax a business extra for every single employee they have.....to stop homelessness.


Damn, where did all the jobs go? Why do we have more homeless people then before?

We need federal funding.


Buy your response is what is expected. I mean what is 20 million dollars to a company like Amazon, right? Whi cares?

It is common knowledge that the tech sector is moving away from that area. It is unsustainable. To keep ahead of the compitition they have to go after younger and younger minds. No 18/yo kid can afford to move out there and no business in their right mind would gamble on moving a number of them out there. Especially since the up and coming model is to get them before college and train them in house.

You get responses like thise from goober who have their information spoon fed to them from the legacy media.

You don't get out much other than reading what agrees with you. Silicon Valley is the epicenter of startups because the concentration of talent and venture capital. Once these startups get a foothold they move away to avoid the taxes and high cost of living. It happened in the early 2000's and it is happening again. And it will happen to Seattle.

Quote:
Amazon's search for a second headquarters outside Seattle is just the beginning of a tech exodus from expensive coastal cities to cheaper inland locations, Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman said Wednesday.

"Silicon Valley is going to leave Silicon Valley — that's already happened," Kelman told CNBC's "Power Lunch."

"The technology companies, the Wall Street companies, they're chasing the talent, [and] the talent is chasing affordable housing."

Kelman, head of the online real estate brokerage and data company, predicted an accelerating shift out of coastal cities as homeowners seek to avoid the higher tax rates of the recently passed Republican tax bill.

Densely populated and pricey cities, he said, are already losing residents and businesses.

"Google employs more engineers outside of Silicon Valley than it does in Silicon Valley, and if Google can't afford Silicon Valley, then no one can."

The "mass migration" to the center of the country is populating cities that were "economically dead five or 10 years ago," Kelman said.

These investors aren’t alone. In recent months, a growing number of tech leaders have been flirting with the idea of leaving Silicon Valley. Some cite the exorbitant cost of living in San Francisco and its suburbs, where even a million-dollar salary can feel middle class. Others complain about local criticism of the tech industry and a left-wing echo chamber that stifles opposing views. And yet others feel that better innovation is happening elsewhere.
