Ever been to New York City? If you work in public relations, the answer is probably, “Yes.”
It’s the media mecca. It’s the holy ground of journalism. And it’s the… most friggin’ expensive place on earth!
My God, man. A brother can go broke there without ordering room service.
I mean, has anyone bothered checking out the home prices in that city?
$1.5 million for a 660 square-foot tin shanty, but hey, it’s got a view… if you look waaaaaaaaaay in the corner of that rear window in your bathroom, you can see a tree past those gutters. Sweet.
Well, the economy is evidently still putting the squeeze on real estate in the city that never sleeps.
The policy applies only to shelter residents who have income from jobs.
Sure. Never mind those jobs are typically dishwasher, asbestos cleaner, sewage drainer and pooper scoopers, but hey, it’s a gig. Right?
They could be expected to pay up to half their earnings.
Because when you are living in a homeless shelter (oxymoron, eh?), you can easily afford that kind of scratch on three hots and a cot… for you and your family.
Pathetic. In a world where the economy is public enemy #1 and charity is sorely floundering amidst public panic, New York City shows up in a sterling fashion.
I understand every city has to get their cut, but to get “stimulated” on the backs of the disenfranchised, impoverished and destitute? Hrm.
The Big Apple looks like it has sour grapes to me. Poetic. And nutritious too.
