Cartoon: The prodigal son
The prodigal son by Ian Foley
This new cartoon illustrates the return of tech workers back to San Francisco.
In 2020 it was popular to write about the end of a tech era and people fleeing the city with its high rents, taxes, $5 coffees, crime and homelessness issues.
Now the same publications that wrote about this tech diaspora are talking about a return of workers, particularly young tech entrepreneurs that miss the social interaction and entrepreneurial community.
This is also coinciding with a roaring Silicon Valley economy, which is leading to candidate shortages (according to Indeed, there are currently 72,000 open job reqs in San Francisco).
