Our tourism worker are being priced out of the housing market. Florida law allows rent control in emergencies. Employers need to help with drafting legislation and lobbying local governments.
Have greedy corporate landlords priced our tourism employees out of the monopolistic housing market in St. Augustine, Florida?
Rent control laws are illegal in Florida, except in emergencies.
Sounds to me like this is an "emergency."
Employers need to support emergency rent controls.
It's the right thing to do,
Otherwise, are they just playing for sympathy?
