The Debt $lave vs the Capitalist Elite
"The fact that there hasn’t been a nationwide rent-freeze in the U.S. (& all countries) is a damn tragedy.
No one should be forced to pay rent during a global pandemic- especially when a huge chunk of
the population is confined to their home and can’t work. I’m sorry if you’re going through this." – RWJ
Problematic American YouTuber and "has-been?" Ray William Johnson doesn’t think anyone should have to
pay their rent during a global pandemic and my God, the comments he gets are absolutely sickening and upvoted
to heaven. Ie. What if your only income comes from renting a flat? Slum landlords objected and
people showed little or no sympathy, many telling them to “get a real job.” One call his tenants "the poors".
Major U.S. retail and restaurant chains, including Mattress Firm and Subway, are telling landlords
they will withhold or slash rent in the coming months after closing stores to slow the coronavirus.
Mattress Firm, with about 2,400 stores, sent landlords a letter last week saying it would cut rent
in exchange for longer leases and offering two options to do so. This week, it sent a more urgent
note revoking its earlier offer. In a statement, Subway said it was looking at ways to help franchises
mitigate the virus fallout.https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-24/u-s-retailers-plan-to-stop-paying-rent-to-offset-virus-closures
“If the government doesn’t step in in any form or fashion, it could get ugly. They need to respond
quickly.” - Vince Tibone, analyst at Green Street Advisors
That proves my point, that a bank is not a home..
