Silicon Valley Bank broke. Silicon Valley is broken 

Silicon Valley Bank's financial troubles reflect a broader problem in the tech hub.

Skyrocketing costs of living and stagnant wages make it tough for locals to make ends meet.

Many workers are struggling to afford basic necessities like housing and healthcare.

The pandemic has only worsened inequality in the region, with low-wage workers hit hardest.

Tech companies have been criticized for exacerbating housing shortages and traffic congestion.

The region's political leaders have been slow to address these issues and enact meaningful change.

Many believe Silicon Valley has lost touch with its founding principles of innovation and progress.

Some are calling for a reimagining of the region's values and priorities.

It remains to be seen whether Silicon Valley can repair its reputation and address its many challenges.
