The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I am semi-retired and being able to supplement my income through airbnb rentals will help to allow me to remain stable during my retirement-in fact, it is crucial. In addition, living alone, it allows me to meet and interact with young people from around the world, helping me to stay young minded and tuned in to the world. Not allowing organizations such as this to operate would ignore the needs of seniors such as myself-and be a vote for big corporations-not people.
