California's high housing costs drive out poor, middle-income workers



California's high cost of living has pushed hundreds of thousands of low- and middle-income workers to other states, federal data show.

The state overall has been losing people to other parts of the country since the 1990s. A snapshot of more recent U.S. Census migration numbers shows that nearly three-quarters of those who have left California for other states since 2007 earn less than $50,000 a year.

Experts point to the state's increasingly unaffordable real estate markets as a major driver of the trends.

--These E]experts, however, don't tell WHY they're so unaffordable. Doesn't sound like experts to me

For those making $40,000 to $49,999, for instance, the net loss of population is 15,403 residents since 2007. The loss is 22,754 residents in the $30,000 to $39,999 range, then more than doubles to 46,318 residents in the $20,000 to $29,999 range.

"Housing prices are a primary factor, because that's usually the first thing you deal with when you're moving," said Dowell Myers, a professor of demography and urban planning at USC.

--So the article won't tell you why this is happening, so I will. Very restrictive land use planning prevents people from building new homes. In California they want all new homes to be small, boxy communist style units next to loud train tracks. All other building is discouraged through zoning. Also labor costs are very high, as are taxes. Why would anyone want to build anything in California?

Kansas Judge orders Kansas to spend more on schools


A state court panel in Kansas ruled on Tuesday that public schools were being unconstitutionally underfunded, though it stopped short of ordering a specific increase in education dollars.

The court also ruled that a provision allowing localities to provide funding to equalize the gap between rich and poor districts was insufficient because it did not guarantee that the playing field would be leveled.
