The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Airbnb is helping me pay bills and have money to help in the economy of my city, by being able to eat out, buy things in stores that without the extra funds, I wouldn't be able to buy. I feel safe with Airbnb because they screen people and they guarantee to help us in situations . We are paying taxes on our SSN, which shouldn't be legal, we also pay taxes on our retirement , which shouldn't be legal, this is our money that we have already paid taxes on! We don't have enough money to live on, and Airbnb has helped us feel like living again! People should be able to do what we want on our own property! The State should be happy, we're paying taxes on our Airbnb money!
