For [those who are] evicted, there may not be another place to move in. There are a lot of people in San Jose who are living in their cars and it’s a heartbreaking situation for them. In my rent controlled building, there are people who have been [living there] for 6 going on 7 years. My landlord doesn’t charge any other rent [costs] which is why we need rent controlled units.
