Red Vienna to SF: How Working Class of Vienna Solved Their Housing Crisis and Made the Rich Pay For It
By Professor Irmi Voglmayr, University of Vienna
In 1919, there was a massive housing crisis in Vienna with homelessness. The working class had won political power and implemented a plan of massive housing construction for the working class. Over 220,000 units were built and this well built housing still exists in Vienna and provides good homes for working people of the city.
This forum will look at how the housing crisis was solved in Vienna and the lessons for San Francisco and the United States.
