The primary strategy to deal with the homeless is to whack them over the head to make them move. Then they pop up somewhere else. What else can they do? They don’t have enough money to rent a place to live.
There are very few places to rent under $800 a month here in Victoria — completely out of reach.
Increasing welfare will not work. It will just mean more money chasing the same number of homes. Prices will rise. We have to build sufficient ultra-low cost housing to house everyone.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
