But if it's too expensive to house the employees, the companies will leave and it will at the very least turn into Hawai. Also California is making it too expensive for people in the middle class but it is subsidizing degenerates.

Hawaii isn't even remotely close to being anything like Detroit. It's practically the opposite.

If companies start to leave SF, the price of housing will go down and it will once again become affordable to the middle class.

No matter how you slice it you have defeated your own argument.

Also the degeneracy of the SF Values will self destruct, thereby turning itself into the next Detroit.

Your graph shows metro LA employment reaching a new all-time high last year. What was your point?

???

Putting two graphs side-by-side says noting about each graph.

If I put a graph of employment in Houston next to a graph of employment in SF, what would that say about employment in either of the two cities? Absolutely nothing.

It shows how pathetic growth is in Los Angeles is that Detroit and Chicago are beating it.
