We must do something about this now! Every ceo who refuses to budge on wages, every ceo who refuses to hire full time, every ceo who creates a traffic storm in towns across america but headquarters offshire and pays no taxes, but uses resources for water , electric, and gas thereby driving up all our rates on utilities...also owns rental properties. Rental properties are tax shelters, and investments where they can divest their incomes into a capital gains rate of tax. While we pay and pay, they get write off after write off. They profit off of subsidized rents which we all must contribute to so renters on stagnant wages can reach their exhorbitant rates. We need rent control now! We need to stop subsidizing robber land barons and insist that living somewhere is not a second income business for ceos and traders...or anyone for that matter. It is absolutely insane I look at rates twice what it would cost to own. How does one own when one can never save since their entire income goes to rent? This is a crisis ...it is greed gone mad. 8.00 an hour starting wage, 12-14 dollars an hour for an experienced secretary, rent rates of 1400-1700 per month. Fucking rape! Ceo won't pay us, then demands all of what we do get in rent! Double fucking us " bend over working class...we own ...YOU"
