The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Sharing my space on Airbnb helps pay my mortgage and bills which I can no longer afford, im a 58 year old single woman and am barely making ends meet. Airbnb is a vital option for myself and families in America to earn extra money to survive and be able to stay in their homes pay bills and survive. Guests who stay in Airbnb listings generate sustainable, local economic activity that supports the small businesses in communities across the country.
