My take on Prop F

Airbnb’s narrative is very seductive.  Yes, some people need extra income.  However, buying into that story line prevents us from looking into real difficulty of the systemic problem of inadequate compensation.  This includes lack of living wages and benefits for workers, and inadequate government funding for programs for the disabled and the retired.  The Airbnb model is eating into our rental stock and aimed more toward the greedy not the needy.  We can counter this by getting involved in demanding adequate wages and adequate funding from governments for the needy among us.  And vote YES on F.
