Find materials and information about a US Rent Strike―the pandemic caused by the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in mass unemployment, yet there has been no freeze on rent or mortgage payments. The severity of the outbreak is largely due to political officials failing to take the outbreak seriously, all while they sold off stocks to protect their own investment portfolios. While the stimulus package provides trillions of dollars for corporate bailouts, average Americans have offered a mere one-time check of $1200 (many people without work don’t even qualify for this). If nothing changes, US inequality is on track to rapidly get worse.
