How many years do you think they have left? Its obvious there is a shift happening in the, once, golden state. High skill people are leaving at a faster rate, while low skill people clamor to get in on the dying horse. The 2020 census will be VERY telling.
Throw a dart at the board:
Massive water shortage?
Druqs reducing the effectiveness of the population?
Run out of people to tax?
Massive industry exodus which would cripple the value and jerbs?
You can only run so far. Many flocked to Colorado over the last 15 years. Tons of tech has left to Texas. You see articles weekly with new issues. When will you admit its a sinking shit of a state?

According to U.S. Census Bureau population estimates released on Monday, approximately 203,000 people moved out of California between 2018 and 2019 – with the bulk of them heading to other western states like Arizona, Texas and Colorado, where the cost of life is less pricey.
Do you live here and are you actually researching this or posting senseless articles from the fake news bureaus?
Tech people aren't really leaving, The BEST workers are here and stay here. Places like Austin and other places along the red states are picking up mid/low level tech labor. So it is just an expansion of tech in general, less so an 'Exodus out of California due to xyz'
This is still tech mecca, with the money/brains backing everything in this particular area.
Are there real issues? Fuck yea, the bum situation is out of control, but it is in select areas. Naturally the most visible as tourists present the easiest begging targets.
I have had quite a few friends leave the bay area, but plenty of others are joining the ranks, it is sort of a revolving door out here. I can't speak to LA as I don't know the market dynamics for SO-CAL which are completely different from NorCAL. We're almost two different states both demographically and industry speaking.
The population of california is actually going UP even with all this "exodus". The way I see it here, the smartest are staying those who are blah are leaving... they didn't make the cut. (for now)
