To the author of this article: stop referring to RV dwellers as “homeless.” Those RV vehicles ARE their homes. Many RV dwellers have jobs. They simply don’t make enough to rent an apartment in Mountain View.

Want to do something useful? Interview Mountain View RV dwellers and publish their perspective.

Remote work could affect more than traffic! Will so much local housing be needed if Google employees work remote 2 days per week going forward? If a good number work from outside of HQ, i.e. fully remote, will the growth locally continue unabated? This pandemic may have yielded new behaviors which actually help other issues over the coming decades. Certainly there are still concerns for the lower income workers, not employed by Tech companies like Google, or those who are second class co-employees of the Googles of the valley. Google has a lot of unique plans for its opulent campuses of the future, but will the now be more neighbor-friendly? I think this may well be so.
