2020 Continues To Suck (The Miracle of the Trump Economy)

Gig Economy Company Launches Uber, But for Evicting People

“SINCE COVID-19 MANY AMERICANS FELL BEHIND IN ALL ASPECTS,” reads the website copy. The button below this statement is not for a GoFundMe, or a petition for calling for rent relief. Instead, it is the following call to action, from a company called Civvl: “Be hired as eviction crew.”

During a time of great economic and general hardship, Civvl aims to be, essentially, Uber, but for evicting people. Seizing on a pandemic-driven nosedive in employment and huge uptick in number-of-people-who-can’t-pay-their-rent, Civvl aims to make it easy for landlords to hire process servers and eviction agents as gig workers.

Everything is outsourced.

    So if you’re desperately looking for a job because your employer or company closed due to COVID-19 concerns and you find this gig ad you could conceivable end up evicting yourself in the process of earning enough to pay your rent.

    Just exactly who is going to rent these newly vacant rental properties? People who can’t pay their mortgage?

      Exactly. If they evict everyone who can’t pay, they’ll end up with a lot of vacant apartments chasing the relatively few apartment-seekers who can pay. They’d be better off trying to reach an arrangement with their tenants to keep them until the economy recovers and they can start paying again.

        Bet me it’s going after rent-controlled apartments, too, so they can bring them up to market rates. I smell a Kushner.

        It worked out so well for them in the 2008 debacle, what with the squatters trashing their properties, the vacancies encouraging litter strewing parties to prepare other vacant properties for the vermin infestations and let’s not forget the payouts that some institutions actually had to pay for actions that were so egregious that they could not be ignored.
        It also changed the tax code so that a foreclosure now has to balance the elimination of that debt against the value of the equity in the asset that was lost.
        Well, unless the trump tax screwed that up to. I haven’t kept up with tax rules for a few years now.

    And since they’re contractors there’s no need for insurance, workers comp, or overtime pay.
