    How does homelessness exist when minimum wage at Costco is $16/hr and

    and even in expensive areas like L.A. county, people can buy a trailer home for 5 figures?

    Costco Stores: 18

    Estimation of # employees per store: 300 (on the generous side too)

    Total Costco employees: 5,400


    In conclusion: 66k > 5,400
    So the solution is for either L.A. to demand a $16 minimum wage or for other companies like Kroger to stop being greedy slave drivers? $15/hr today is like $6/hr in 2012. Look at home prices. A company that can't pay $15/hr in L.A., New York, San Francisco, etc doesn't deserve to exist.

    Costco isn't an easy job to get. There are a lot of people that want to work there for good benefits. Once you're homeless, you lose employability a lot of times.

    Mobile homes aren't land so getting a loan for them isn't like getting a loan for a real home.

    Also, $16 an hour in LA is laughable. You'll have to live with a gang of strangers or friends (if you have them).

    This. The same people have been working at our Costcos for years. They don't look like they are leaving anytime soon. You probably have to be referred by a current employee to even get an interview.

    have you ever worked with homeless people?

    for those that want an opportunity, they may not have the means to get a job at Costco or the means to keep it.

    Then there is the contingent of those who are dealing with mental health issues and/or addiction.

    And finally there is a segment of homeless people that actually, in their own way, prefer to be homeless.

    Despite what nerds like this say, the majority are either mentally ill, stopped trying, or actually want to freeload and do drugs

    To the credit of the shelters, every time I went to a new one, I was asked if I wanted help from a menu of services ranging from mental health therapy to drug and alcohol counseling to job placement. I was impressed by the range of services offered to anyone wanting to improve their circumstances. In the shelters, I observed three categories of people experiencing homelessness: the mentally ill, the chronically homeless suffering from drug and alcohol addictions, and those displaced by economic circumstances who were finding work and using the shelter as a temporary means to save enough money to get back on their feet.

    In the encampments, the experience was entirely different.

    What was surprising to me about the shelter population and the encampment inhabitants was that I found them to be two very distinct groups that never intersected. I never found a shelter person who had stayed in an encampment and an encampment inhabitant who had ever stayed in a shelter. The encampment inhabitants tended to be much younger than those in the shelters. Many of them reminded me of the counter-cultural hippie movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s where “dropping out” of society and living in a communal setting, with the common denominator being drug use, defined their movement. Only for that generation, it was largely marijuana and hallucinogenic drugs. For the encampment generation today, the drug use is much more serious with the dominant drug being crystal methamphetamine. It was common to see these young people shooting up or smoking meth in glass pipes.

    The advocates for the encampments want us to believe that the reasons why the encampment inhabitants never access shelters are because they are afraid of the congregate living arrangements during a pandemic, are concerned about having their few possessions stolen, or fear for their safety. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the shelters, I always felt safe, I was always required to wear a mask, was constantly reminded about social distancing, and I never had anything stolen from me. In the encampments, I never felt safe, no one ever wore a mask or even concerned themselves with social distancing, and I had a number of items stolen.

    The real reason why the encampment inhabitants refuse to access the shelters is simple — the shelters have rules. One rule, in particular, keeps the encampment inhabitants out of shelters and that rule is that drugs and drug use are prohibited.

    The mentally ill do deserve help. The rest can either starve or work.
