The COVID pandemic has given birth to a brutal recession. A new report from the Economic Roundtable predicts job loss from this recession will cause homelessness in Los Angeles to skyrocket. How bad could it get? Who will it hurt? And most importantly, how can we prevent it?  Mike talks about that with the report’s author, Dan Flaming, this week on What’s Next, Los Angeles.  (Plus, Mike shares a few thoughts on the Biden inaugural.)
