The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I am a teaching artist in Brooklyn - I teach movement to over 500 children a week - Id invite any of you to try this difficult and important work of entertaining and introducing fitness to these children after school. I work incredibly hard to pay the huge rent required (huge rent in my opinion because of the developers getting tax breaks and land grabs and long time renters left to pick up the tab.) For me to take a measly Summer break - I HAVE to rent my apartment via AirBnB or thru craigslist. I have done so for years previously thru Craigslist - now the process is safer and easier.
