The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Airbnb has been a lifesaver for my husband and I. My husband retired after 30 years with State Of Vermont and I spend more than 23 years as a foster parent in Vermont. We are the middle class. Because we were savers and bought property many years ago, we have two older homes in two states. The maintenance and property taxes have soared in the last 5-10 years. We need airbnb income to help us continue the lifestyle we worked so hard for our entire adult lives. It has been a blessing to share our Florida home with others. Please help the middle class, those who use airbnb to rent space in their homes, to continue to have a source of income. Thank you, Pat Hazouri
