The Rent is Too Damn High – San Fran Residents Pay $1,000 a Month to Live in Shipping Containers

___________________________________________________________________________________

There’s nothing quite like a grotesquely lopsided “economic recovery” in which a handful of cities boom, while the rest of the nation stagnates. Even worse, millennials living in such chosen cities face one of two options. Either live in mom and dad’s basement, or face a standard of living far more similar to 19th tenement standards than the late 1990’s tech boom.

With that out of the way, I want to introduce you to what a $1,000 per month rental in the San Francisco Bay area looks like. Shipping containers

i have already seen several people living in makeshift rusty containers in some of the poorest neighborhoods.

The bay area is notoriously expensive and will be as long as people are willing to pay high prices. On the plus side you wouldn't worry about earthquake insurance for a shipping container.

It is a world "problem" - There are just too many people on this rock (flat or round) I just wonder for how much longer will the resources be able to sustain the groth in population.  People live longer because of medical advances yet some breed like rabbits and have no consequence as to how they will feed the kids.
