Crowdfund to rent out those airbnb sh*tholes and then make them uninhabitable. Direct action is the only thing that works when you can't rely on laws - That guy in the story put in so much work and the council did nothing.

Revenue is writing to around 12,000 Airbnb hosts warning them that they are liable to pay tax on cash earned from letting their properties to visitors.

I'm so glad they did.
Found a discrepancy in the other half's P60 and the revenue owe us.

What does HAP and rent income supplement do to rents. I have not done the advantages and disadvantages of this, it seems to put low paid full time workers at a disadvantage if they can't get a supplement. Regarding the Airbnb business, this is a relatively labour intensive business to run, all the waiting around and cleaning up and waiting. Then you have to pay household charges, water, waste, heating, esb,insurance and a premium of 15 per cent fees to Airbnb, nothing very much left. We need everything to solve the housing people shortage. Everything.

How Estimates of the Gig Economy Went Wrong [paywalled]
https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-estimates-of-the-gig-economy-went-wrong-11546857000
Quote:
Two leading experts on the “gig economy” now say their estimates of its impact were too high, skewed by spotty data and the recession of a decade ago.


The Gig Economy Is a Big Nothingburger
https://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2019/01/the-gig-economy-is-a-big-nothingburger/
Quote:
First, the gig economy appeared swollen largely because the labor market earlier this decade was so weak for so long in the aftermath of the recession. Rather than heralding a permanent shift in the relationship of Americans to employers, a lot of gig-economy activity was odd jobs that people took up to make ends meet. As the economy returned to normal, they returned to more familiar work arrangements.

Sugar daddy capitalism: even the world’s oldest profession is being uberised

Sugar baby websites are the brainchild of US tech entrepreneur Brandon Wade.
Wade isn’t appealing to romantics. He has called love “a concept invented by poor people”.

Rise in ‘sugar babies’ mirrors increase in student sex work

UK is the increase in student involvement in sex work in recent years (particularly erotic dancing, other non-direct services and escorting) as the cost of university has risen. Reasons cited by students for their involvement in sex work include greater flexibility and financial reward compared to traditional part-time work. Recent figures suggest that almost one in 20 students now engage in sex work during their time at university and more than one in five have considered it.


Is this the commercialisation of everything via the gig economy or is it the generation who grew up with smartphones and saw everything including hard core porn from a young age? or a combination?

Just in Dublin on a single one of those sites there are over 2,000 women, mainly in their 20s and even late teens offering themselves as prostitutes (sorry "sugar babies.") Most of them include pictures of their faces. When you count the numbers engaged in other forms of sex work, it's a pretty shocking figure for a city with this size of population in a supposedly wealthy "progressive" country.

It has been widely reported than young people are less promiscuous than previous generations.

The more likely explanation is that they really need the money.

It's not unknown for sites to create fake profiles to bump their stats.
