Thanks to some bad choices many years ago, I was once on one of the Caltrans crews that cleaned up some of those camps. No notice was given, and we got rid of everything that was there. At least they are given notice in advance now.
It is amazing that the restaurant industry's profit is based on a low wage low/no benefit part-time workforce, many of which are illegals, and then cheats them out of their hard earned money. The State allows less than minimum wages and then taxes the forced-to-share tips of the wait staff. On top of that the taxpayers supplement the restaurants profit by providing welfare benefits to the workers.
I think it's odd that Manchester would sell the UT after only 2 years and making acquisitions of newspapers the past year or so. My only guess is that he is hoping sell UT and retain the land. The UT's circulation has continued to drop so perhaps he figures it's time to cut his losses and sell. The other factor to consider is that Manchester has not put much resources into the paper other than UTTV which is now a online web channel broadcast only.
