Default San Francisco Bay Area Experiences Mass Exodus Of Residents

I wasn't surprised to read this. The economy is so bad in California that I recently saw residents on the news complaining that one must make at least $80,000 a year in order to afford to live in LA. Apparently the same problem exists elsewhere in the state as well.

The number of people packing up and moving out of the Bay Area just hit its highest level in more than a decade.

Carole Dabak spent 40 years living in San Jose and now she’s part of the mass exodus that is showing no signs of slowing down.

The retired engineer’s packing up and calling it quits about to move to the state of Tennessee.

“I loved it here when I first got here. I really loved it here. But it’s just not the same,” Dabak said.

Of course people come and go from the Bay Area all the time, but for the first time in a long time, more people are leaving the Bay Area than are coming in. And the number one place in the country for out-migration is now, right here.

“You can’t even contemplate getting into the housing market here,” Hancock said. “And I don’t mean just service workers, I mean highly skilled professionals. The tech elite are having a hard time affording reasonable housing in Silicon Valley. So this is difficult, this makes it very difficult for employers trying to recruit.”

Operators of a San Jose U-Haul business say one of their biggest problems is getting its rental moving vans back because so many are on a one-way ticket out of town.

Dabak cites crowding, crime and politics as the reasons for her own exodus.

“We don’t like it here anymore. You know, we don’t like this sanctuary state status and just the politics here,” she said.

She plans to sell her home for about $1 million, buy a much larger place near Nashville for less than half that and retire closer to family and friends.

San Francisco is a "sanctuary city." You would think residents would feel safer there and want to stay.

This mass exodus and expensive living breaks my heart

WOHHHH-HAHAHAHA! Just kidding. Good for you, all you people who elected those politicians with the big heart for the south of the border freeloaders.

Too many of the typical knee-jerk conservative responses with "liberals suck" as their obvious sole mental state.
People moving out of San Francisco? Yes.
Where do the majority of those people move to? Sacramento CALIFORNIA

People moving out of L.A? Yes.
Where do the majority of those people move to? San Diego CALIFORNIA


The article quoted "redfin" as their source and anybody who looked at it will recognize that.
https://www.redfin.com/blog/2017/11/...t-q3-2017.html

The site below shows California has had a POSITIVE net migration flow (more coming in than leaving) for the last several years.

Not only that but liberal laws are a major factor as well as immigration laws.

San Francisco is experiencing a ‘mass exodus.’ The city’s liberal policies are to blame.

So there is no mass exodus from San Francisco?

San Francisco is expensive. Like, literally one of the most expensive places to live in the country. People flock to San Francisco because of the high paying jobs in silicone valley. Which increases the cost of living. So what you are seeing is people leaving because they can't afford to pay rent or just live there. San Diego is slowly getting the same way.

Basically it's a bubble, and unless you make a **** load of money you can't afford to live there.

Why conservatives have such a hard on for California I'll never understand. Maybe it's because they have more fun and make more money there. And even with all those liberal policy's they still have a bigger economy than most traditional conservative red states combined.
