Los Angeles "home of the homeless": Housing prices and low wages force citizens to live on the street
"City of Angels" today is more like a picture of some post-apocalyptic future. Along all the streets of Downtown Los Angeles, tent cities are laid out, thousands of homeless people ply in search of work.
The author of the video, on the first frames shows the housing prices in Los Andeles, Studio - from 1979 dollars to 2180 dollars, 1 Bedroom - from 2199 dollars to 2741 dollars, 2 Bedroom from 2925 dollars to 3858 dollars. With an average salary of $ 2500 it is impossible to rent a house. This clip is only the "tip of the iceberg", which hides the infrastructure destroyed to the ground, negligible help, or rather its absence, from social services and the prohibitively high crime rate, both within homeless communities and in government.
Today it is clear that the city authorities are not taking any action to help citizens find housing.
A similar situation is observed in many large cities, which in the past were positioned as US tourist centers. In San Francisco, the townspeople themselves decided to expel the homeless, since there is complete devastation in the very center of the city and the central region is already considered to be the criminal center. As with the absolute inaction of the police, and sometimes right in front of your eyes of the officers, the people living on the street defecate and take drugs. Ordinary residents of San Francisco are afraid to leave their homes.
