Because large cities disincentivize breeding and white Australian birth rates are below replacement level, the Australian government decided that it'd be best to turn the entire country into a garbage dump ruled by Chinese aristocracy. And, wow, it's going so well!
The number of people who are homeless in Australia has soared by almost 15 per cent, with newly released Census data showing people living in “severely” overcrowded dwellings are the greatest contributors to this increase.
Basically, you can give a cold thanks to all the nonwhites who are settling anywhere and everywhere. Modern whites don't try to fit twelve family members into a three bedroom house in the suburbs.
The number of people who were homeless on Census night in the City of Sydney (ABS data is divided up by local government area) increased by almost 70 per cent. The Melbourne local government area recorded a massive 85 per cent increase. New South Wales recorded a marked jump, with the number of people who are homeless up 37 per cent between 2011 and 2016. In Victoria, there was an 11 per cent increase in people who were counted as homeless in the last Census. Queensland also recorded a rise of about 13 per cent.
Migrants were disproportionately affected: almost a third of Australians were born overseas but about 45 per cent of people who are homeless are migrants.
This emerging trend was extremely concerning, said the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia. “These figures show how vulnerable newly arrived migrants are when they first come to Australia," said chairperson Mary Patetsos.
Yep, that's clearly what they show. Seriously, you gotta wonder how these people manage to breathe and think at the same time. Jeniuz.
Homelessness Australia chair Jenny Smith said these figures showed the unaffordable housing crisis was getting worse. “These figures will come as no surprise to our homelessness services … who have to turn away 250 people each day,” Ms Smith said.
While the number of people sleeping rough on the streets increased by about 20 per cent, they represent only 7 per cent of the total homeless population. There are a far greater number of “hidden homeless”; living in support accommodation, boarding houses or couch surfing. People in “severely” crowded dwellings – defined as requiring four or more bedrooms to accommodate the people who usually live there – were the greatest contributor to the national increase in homelessness, about 40 per cent of the total.
Guy Johnson, a professor of urban housing and homelessness at RMIT University, said rising housing costs combined with a decline in public and community housing were exacerbating homelessness among the chronically disadvantaged.
