61. Obsurd.

 

Neither Apple or Amazon were "big tech" when they started out. In fact, BOTH were started literally in a garage. They grew to where they are today in the locations that they started up in.

Were they blind to the developing housing situation around them as they grew? Yes they were, but so was the numerous US government research labs in the area, Stanford University, troves of companies that started out small in Silicon Valley and are now major corporations.

Apple stepped forward with money that it doesn't have to put out there, that should be acknowledged in a positive way with a nudge for them to do more. But they get hit in the mouth, that isn't going to make other big corporations that may be looking at helping with housing want to stick their heads up.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
