Here’s what happens when [tag-tec]tenants[/tag-tec] rule.
New York’s Housing Board is scheduled to vote on rent increases for the city’s 1 million apartments.
Let’s hope it goes more smoothly than last year.
New York [tag-self]tenants[/tag-self] don’t like rent increases. And they have lots of power. Landlords have to go to the Housing Board to get permission to raise them.
It’s called [tag-ice]rent control[/tag-ice] and it’s a left over relic from WWII when overcrowding and price gouging were top problems.
Last year tenants interrupted the meeting for three hours by banging on bongo drums and generally making a lot of noise.
Now they think they’ll need a metal detector.
