「龙腾网」为什么加州街头有如此多无家可归者?


According to U.S. Department of Housing statistics, the number of homeless people in California has increased by 40% in the last 5 years. California is home to 12% of the U.S. population, but is home to half of the population living on the streets of the United States. An estimated 66,000 homeless people live in Los Angeles County alone. Some might think that this problem has not been solved due to lack of resources, however, California in recent years has approved all kinds of taxes and mechanisms aimed specifically at this problem. In the 2021 state budget, $12 billion was committed to address homelessness over the next 2 years. To get a sense of what this amount means, if you were to divide that value by the number of homeless people statewide (160,000), each person is allocated $75,000. So the questions are: why hasn't so much money solved the problem for years? Why hasn't the free market been able to provide solutions? And, how could a law that went into effect in early 2022 be an initial step toward solving the crisis?

据美国住房部的统计数据显示,加州无家可归者的数量在过去5年里增加了40%,加州的人口仅占美国总人口的12%,但它却是美国一半没家可归者的聚集地。据统计,光是在洛杉矶县就有66000名无家可归者。有人可能会认为这个问题之所以没有得到妥善解决是因为加州政府缺乏相关资源。然而事实上加州近年来批准了各种各样针对这个问题的税收减免机制并建立了大量致力于解决该问题的相关机构。在2021年的州财政预算中,政府承诺将花费120亿美元以期在未来两年内解决这个问题。如果你想更加直观地了解这个数字的话,只需要将这个数字除以全加州无家可归者的数量(16万),得出的结论就是每个人可以分到7.5万美元。那么问题来了:为什么加州多年来花了如此多的钱却依旧没能解决这个问题?为什么自由市场无法为这一问题提供解决方案?而且,2022年初生效的法律是否又能成为我们解决危机的第一步?

We have a lot of homelessness in Phoenix. It is so hot here and the prices just to rent has skyrocketed

我们凤凰城也有很多无家可归之人,这里实在太热了,而且房租的价格也在飞涨。

Same in Florida, not quite the same heat (we have more humidity...and gators) but the costs of living have increased rapidly which is displacing people. There are many Florida state jobs at the professional grade that don't pay enough to afford rent in the communities the jobs are located in. It's crazy!

佛罗里达的情况也一样,我们这没有那么热(不过我们这湿度更高,而且还有鳄鱼)然而生活成本正在飞速上升,人们渐渐被挤出了这座城市。很多在佛罗里达州从事专业工作的人所拿到的工资依旧不够让他们在自己所工作的社区租到房子,这实在太疯狂了。
Jessica McNally
The problem is everywhere now, housing costs and energy costs are very high everywhere now.

这个问题已经无处不在了,如今的住房成本和能源成本实在太高了。

Lol no it's barely anywhere. Only a few cities that won't keep their streets clean. All those people in those areas are bums not just the homeless. We would never let our community look so trashy. Shame on you.

哈哈,不,并没有无处不在哦。只有少数几座城市的街道会邋遢到那种地步。那些游荡在街头上的人们可不仅仅是无家可归者,他们更像是流浪汉才对。我们永远不会让自己的社区看起来如此下作。你们实在太丢人了。

Guess what, I walk around everyday and talk with the homeless here in SF, and most tell me they aren't even from CA. I'm told by a lot of people that they were given a bus ride on greyhound from out of state. Unlike other cities, we don't ship people like they are trash. Yes, there are a lot of homeless in CA, but look at your own state and how they handle the problem.

你们猜怎么着?我每天都会在旧金山街头和那些无家可归的人们聊天,大多数人都跟我说他们甚至并不来自加州。很多人告诉我,他们是在州外被人与送上灰狗巴士运过来的。不像其他城市,我们可不会像运输垃圾一般把人赶走。是的,加州确实有很多无家可归的人,但是你们先看看自己州什么德行吧,看看他们究竟是如何处理这个问题的。

It’s California’s version of affordable housing.

这就是加州版的经济适用房。
Asian American Advice
It's not about high housing costs. The cities of Austin, LA, Phoenix and others for instance have very large populations of immigrants arriving with nearly nothing. They are mostly Hispanic and sometimes Asian people who came here illegally and often owe someone a lot of money for passage into the Southwest. They make up a very tiny proportion of the homeless from my research. And in fact they endup making a ton of cash sometimes and bring over more people to make another pile of cash. As the point is, drugs create houselessness in the USA. See the numerous interviews online, for instance TALES FROM THE STREETS YouTube channel. Anyhow, I feel for the recent people who were addicted and lost their family support and end up on the streets. I pray for them.

这个问题和高昂的住房成本无关。举个例子吧,奥斯丁,洛杉矶,凤凰城等城市有大量的移民,他们刚刚踏足美国时几乎一无所有。其中有很多非法进入美国的西班牙裔以及一些亚裔。
他们为了能够进入美国西南部欠下了一屁股债。然而这帮人仅占据了无家可归者数量的极小一部分。事实上,他们甚至能最终赚到一大笔钱,并吸引更多人非法移民进入美国赚钱。因此问题的重点就是,美国之所以有如此多无家可归者实际上是因为毒品。我们可以在网上看到很多的相关采访,比如油管频道“街头的故事”。无论如何,我依旧非常同情那些因为吸毒成瘾而失去家庭支持并最终沦落至街头的人们。我为他们祈祷。

Most of them are from other states where it has an inhumane climate for homelessness.

他们中大多数都是来自其他州,那些地方的气候对无家可归者而言实在太残酷了。

I make $73,000 a year and I can barely afford a 1bd apartment by myself. Unless you live with roommates

我一年能挣73000美元,但是还是没法自己一个人租一套公寓,还是得找室友合租。

There are a lot of homeless people that are not from California. California doesn’t harass them like other state or city thus they all congregate in CA. Plus, there are too much benefits for homeless vs a lot of red states

很多无家可归者其实并不来自加州。因为加州不像其他州或者城市那样去骚扰他们,所以这些人都聚集到了加州。此外,与很多红州相比,无家可归者能在加州收获更多的福利。

The problem is we overvalue human lives. The simple solution is to gather these people up and put them in an isolated town or prison like location where they're free to do as they please without the rest of us being frightened with them

问题的关键在于我们高估了人类生命的价值。最简单的解决办法就是将这帮人聚集在一起,将他们关进一个与世隔绝的小镇或者监狱里。在那里,他们可以自由自在地做他们想要做的事情,而我们其他人也能免受他们的惊吓。
Jaybee Delacruz
It has become a lifestyle

无家可归已经成为一种生活风格了。

You have to think like a corporation to understand. People as products and a lot of product is not needed in many areas, so you need to warehouse them some place until that day they pass away and it has to be at a minimum cost. To move the good products out of Cali and move unwanted products to Cali.

我们必须像一家企业般思考才能真正理解这个问题。人就像是一件产品,很多产品在很多领域里都是不被需要的,所以你需要做的就是将这些产品储存到某个地方,直到他们去世为止,而且我们还必须将储存成本降到最低。把优秀的产品运出加州,再把那些不被需要的产品运回加州。

Make no mistake about it. It's survival of the fittest. Darwin is always working.

毫无疑问,这就是适者生存,达尔文法则从不缺席。

That's because all the homeless people around the USA are being bused to CALIFORNIA by their social workers..... all homeless people come here for nice warm weather and homeless benefits offered by gov.

那是因为美国所有的无家可归者都被他们当地的社会工作者们用巴士送到了加州....这些无家可归者在这里享受到了温暖的气候以及加州政府为无家可归者提供的福利。

Often families send their teenagers addicted to fentanyl to Cali.

而且很多家庭也会把自己那些芬太尼上瘾的孩子送去加州。

Prices are too high in California, if you don't pay rent you can buy more drugs with the money you have. I had been homeless so I'm not talking out the of my neck. Most Americans live pretty much paycheck to paycheck. Lose your job homeless. Get sick can't work homeless. Screw off a paycheck getting high or drunk homeless. As you can see the problem runs pretty deep. Starting in grade school teaching money management would be a great start........

加州的物价实在太高了,如果你不付房租的话,你就能用更多的钱购买毒品了。我也曾无家可归过,所以我不是在胡言乱语。大多数美国人都是月光族。如果他们失去工作的话就会无家可归,如果他们生病了没法工作也会无家可归。把工资花在嗑药和酗酒上~~无家可归!如你们所见,这个问题十分严重。从小学起就教导学生理财会是一个很好的开始....

That's horrible, why do they say America is the dream land?

这太可怕了,那为什么他们还说美国是梦想国度?
