"I don't want to stop the whipping, I want to be the one holding the whip."

This is a new low in the exploitation of lower-class social cannibalism.

JFC, corporate America is going to have the lower classes clawing each other's flesh from their bones with their bare hands before to long, and they'll make an app with instructions to make it even easier.

That is straight up farked up. Also sounds like a real good way to get a gun pulled on you if you are doing it in the wrong neighborhood.

Washington, DC (and probably other jurisdictions) already have eviction companies who recruit casual labor to conduct evictions once the U.S. Marshalls serve the order. Maybe Civvl can prevent eviction companies from paying sub-minimum wages for this work. But we're already headed for social catastrophe; greasing the skids does NOT help.

It's been adorable how the past 4 years all I hear about is people discovering things that have existed for a long time and being shocked by it.

How do you think evictions are done?  How do you think process servers are hired?  How do you think crews to throw the trash out on the curb are hired?  It's always been a gig economy.  No apartment complex (aside from ridiculously huge ones) is going to have a wrecking crew on staff.  You just call up your preferred contractor and he puts a crew together, usually by hiring people from the parking lot of Home Depot.

I don't think that the masses now learning how evictions work is something to be particularly proud of.

Can't forget the dramedy performances from small children being tossed into the street, unlike reality tv those tears are genuine!  Need the audience voting to award a 100$ coupon to a trump casino for the family with the winning eviction.  Tonight at 7pm on Fox!

Sounds like we Need another Charles Stewart Parnell and a new Land League/Land War like the one  that followed the Great Irish Famine

I thought my generation had it bad...$3.35/hour, eating rice and beans, sleeping on a piece of foam on the floor, no car...but even at $3.35/hour I had a roof over my head and beans and rice for dinner.

The gig economy will kill this generation - and their parents, too. As the rich get richer and whine about the need to cut taxes.

I guess those rich SOBs figure they have their underground bunkers in Idaho and Montana, plus their Caribbean islands.

Say what you want about Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, but at least they're doing good with their wealth, unlike Bezos and Zuckerberg.

I am convinced that J-B'Ezos is an inter-galactic parasite sent as a precursor to invasion, its using our society's selfish systems against us to lock up all of the wealth and resources to economically starve the population into submission.

I mean, which is more plausible - that story, of that a bookstore in the late nineties maneuvered itself into becoming the world's hugest juggernaut of capitalism that will replace every other industry with its own thanks to its own inertia and power.

Don't pretend like you know me. I'm past anger, that comes earlier in the stages of grief.

Don't forget, it's the sheriff that actually enforces eviction. So when it really comes down to it, all laws (criminal and civil) are enforced at the end of a gun. Don't think that civil penalties are any different, if it piles up enough it ends up with eviction.
