I would like to know what just means in the following piece of remark.
"I’ve got economically zero unemployment in my city, and I’ve got thousands of homeless people that actually are working and just can’t afford housing," said Seattle City Councilman Mike O’Brien. "There’s nowhere for these folks to move to."
In Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, the definitions of just are listed as follows. To pick one as just an assumption, the 10th meaning I made bold looks the most appropriate but I am not sure.
- at the same moment as
- no less than; equally
- by a small amount
- used to say that you/somebody did something very recently
- at this/that moment; now
- going to do something only a few moments from now or then
- (informal) really; completely
