The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Hello! I wanted to give my story regarding AirBnB. I list one of my rooms on AirBnb. This helps me to pay my bills. I am a single parent going to school full-time getting my Mechanical Engineering degree. If I didn't have the income from AirBnb, I would need to work full-time and in turn not be able to go to school to better my life. AirBnb not only helps me improve my life, it also brings the community closer together. I enjoy learning about other people and enjoy finding the connections we have with others in our nation and world wide. We as people, need to support ourselves and each other. This allows us to do that.
