Trillions To The Banks

NYC Starts Charging Rent at Homeless Shelters

"Even the homeless can't escape the high price of a night in New York City.
City officials this month began charging rent to working families staying in public homeless shelters.
The policy stems from a 1997 state law that hasn't been enforced until now. Under that law, shelter managers started to require families to pay a portion of their income, depending on the shelter and family size, according to The New York Times. Residents could be expected to pay up to half their earnings.
Some shelter residents say the new rule will ruin their chances of saving enough money to get an apartment."

This being the case, they are much better off squatting wherever they can.

Absolutely. I easily see complete non compliance with all forms of government in the near future.
