Bomb the System

Day 397Day 397 (February 1, 2015) – San Francisco, CA

Boy is the Mission changing. The grit and grime is being replaced by condos and hipsters. LinkedIn and a few other tech companies recently decided to make this neighborhood their home. And of course the City decided to subsidize these businesses in the form of tax incentives and zoning concessions. Subsidizing the private sector in the name of job creation?!? Jobs for who? Definitely not for the long time residents of the Mission. And in the process of attracting or retaining these tech companies the City helps accelerate gentrification. This is the name of the game in cities across the country. So….I say bomb the system! And lets start over.
