Can homeless people be fined for sleeping outside? A rural Oregon city asks the US Supreme Court (apnews.com)

The scenes were emblematic of the crisis gripping the small, Oregon mountain town of Grants Pass, where a fierce fight over park space has become a battleground for a much larger, national debate on homelessness that has reached the U.S. Supreme Court....

And impose property taxes on rich people to pay for it. Allow those same taxpayers to vote to.have that tax go to permanent housing for the homeless in their zip code and such a vote is also consent to override all local laws in the process and make it lawsuit immune

you might be gay and have to move out, assuming they didn't throw you out as a teen. even if you're straight your parent's won't respect you as an adult if you live with them and impose restrictions on your lifestyle. you also have to appease them in whatever crazy shit they force on you because they can kuck you out if you refuse

I don't want to humor the fantasy of "good Christians" since they're all terrible. jesus being good is just marketing. religion claims to be the source of morality but in reality they claim a monopoly over it and arbitrarily designate anyone outside their group as being evil

it'll be intresting to see how raising the minimum wage for fast food workers specifically impacts the low income job market. I suspect that fast food will have no trouble hiring and other low paying jobs will.

also it's fucking sad that teachers are quitting to work at fucking taco bell. real morale downer for both the students and teachers. I'm well into adulthood now but even back then I regret working hard at school. kids these days seem to be learning that in time. I just hope they put in the effort at self-education instead

We need to tax big corporations and use it to fund public housing at a rate of one unit per 1000 residents in every Big City to small town in this country, and that's the minimum amount some areas will need much more

The point of course is that there shouldn't be entire towns that are on affordable. Expensive houses / condos in the city? Sure I guess. An entire city where nothing is Affordable to people working normal jobs there? No that shouldn't be a thing anywhere and it needs to be made impermissible. We need a lot of non-market housing

You say it takes a hell of a lot to go homeless but there's literally homeless people everywhere in this country. I literally can't ride my bike to the thrift store (can't afford a car) without passing a half dozen tents on the sidewalk, and then you get to the thrift store and it's so deeply picked over there's nothing worth buying. None of that is a sign that things are good. America is a great place if you're rich not if you're poor

Are they willing to hire people who don't already have 10 years experience? Are they willing to train people who are fresh out of high school? If not then those companies can only blame themselves for not having workers. After the Great Recession companies got entitled because they could hire whoever they wanted with whatever experience and degrees they wanted for rock bottom prices and that entitlement never left.

Jails banned in-person visits in order to maximize revenue from voice and video calls as part of a "quid pro quo kickback scheme" with prison phone companies (arstechnica.com)

Across the United States, hundreds of jails have eliminated in-person family visits over the last decade. Why has this happened? The answer highlights a profound flaw in how decisions too often get made in our legal system: for-profit jail telecom companies realized that they could earn more profit from phone and video calls if...

Exactly. Stop being.g a NIMBY and build some damn housing. I think we're gonna see polyamory really take off when more and pore people realize tehy can o ly be free if they can have several incomes under one roof and that being in a relationship makes that tolerable. We.re gonna eventually are people raising kids under those conditions and the partriarchial family start to dissolve by economic forces supported by it's greatest supporters

Due to Republican fuckery only blue States work for this but WA is blue so no problem. Universal fiber to the home is a good idea. States need to pass state level zoning level reform and generally preempt local laws on urban planning but WA already has made some progress on this with HB 1110 last year
