The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Sharing a space on Airbnb helped pay the mortgage, bills, and just make ends meet. I can not find a full time job and without Airbnb income I would be homeless! I like the trust and safety and messaging tools that help hosts get to know the people they choose to share their space with. Airbnb is an important option for middle class families in America to earn extra money. The guests who stay in Airbnb listings generate sustainable, local economic activity that supports the small businesses in communities across the country.
