The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I am a 73 year old widow - i lost my husband 2.5 years ago. His office was behind my house. My son suggested i turn it into an Air BnB. the income i receive from the wonderful people who come stay with me has made it possible for me to stay in my home after the loss of his income. They not only provide income, but most of them are grandparents coming to visit their children and grandkids so we have a lot in common. I am SURE that Lafayette ALSO values the income these people bring to the community as i know they shop and visit the local restaurants when they are here. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE AWAY OR LIMIT THIS GIFT MY HUSBAND SENT ME FROM HEAVEN TO CONTINUE TO TAKE CARE OF ME. t
