Poor people are abandoning California thanks to the high cost of living and poor job market, according to a Sunday report from the Sacramento Bee.
California’s population decreased steadily from 2000 to 2015, and a large portion of that number comes from those without a college degree or high school diploma. Those living on an income at or below the official poverty line — about 2.5 million — left the state from 2005 through 2010, and only 1.7 million replaced them in that time frame.
“Why are people leaving? Economic reasons, the high cost of living, are certainly a part of it,” said Hans Johnson, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California. “For those people (near the poverty line), California is not viable.”
