CBS 60 Minutes did a long segment today (March 7) on the "new homeless" in Columbus, Ohio. It documents low-wage workers who've lost their jobs due to the pandemic, and are living in tents because they can't afford housing. It's notable to see how Columbus - and Ohio in general - is dealing with the problem. They're leaving people in their tents and have mobilized the National Guard to provide emergency services.

The CBS reporter states that homelessness is up some 50% this year, and increasing.
