The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I am an artist and a single mother of three. I condense my family so that we can rent out the extra room to generate income. This extra income has helped me with the basic needs, where otherwise I would have to have two jobs, never see my kids in order to make ends meet. My rent is too high for me to pay it but the alternative is a smaller place for the same price and the extra move in expense to uprooting my family. I think this is a genius idea and everyone benefits from such an arrangement.
