Perhaps employers could rent blocks of storage units, throw up some port a potties and call it employee housing!

Great... Just voicing your opinions will make the cost of storage units quadruple.

There used to be a guy around town who worked construction jobs and lived in a green VW microbus during the summer. His family was wealthy, and he was just a free-spirited misfit with a drug habit. In the winter, he'd rent a storage unit right there around the flat part of CR-129 between the airport and town. If you got out there early on a snowy morning, you'd see his tire tracks where he had pulled out to go to work. One electrical outlet was all he needed to have the comforts of home in the microbus.

I would be more worried about someone trying to sell drugs to 11 year old,then an idiot living in a storeage unit.
