THIS IS REVOLUTION＞podcast Ep. 198: Gentrification and Housing in the COVID Economy w/ Randy Shaw
Before the economic shock of the COVID pandemic, homelessness and affordable housing was becoming a major issue in many blue cities and states across the country. With the eviction moratorium lifted, what protections do poor and working-class people have to stave off homelessness in gentrifying cities? A recent U.S Census Bureau HouseHold Pulse survey is estimating we could have 4.3 million Americans evicted and foreclosed on. Will the Biden ``Build Back Better” infrastructure bill be enough to try to curb this potential homelessness crisis?
