Oakland, Moms 4 Housing, eviction, purchase, + 

An unexpectedly positive coda to that abhorrent Oakland eviction by the militarily-armed Alameda County Sheriff's Office recently:

"In a huge victory that may change the way Oakland (and other cities) looks at vacant housing, homeless mothers who took over an empty property in Oakland announced on Martin Luther King Day they will be purchasing the home through the Oakland Community Land Trust."

"As part of the deal, the company has also agreed to allow the city of Oakland, the land trust, or other affordable housing organizations the first right of refusal on all of their other Oakland properties. In other words, the city will be first in line to have the option to purchase when Wedgewood’s 50 properties go on the market.

It’s a big deal.

Make no mistake: It’s a reluctant, begrudging agreement on the part of Wedgewood. Moms 4 Housing, in collaboration with the Oakland Community Land Trust, repeatedly offered to buy the house during eviction proceedings. The company repeatedly refused."




"Our analysis of more than two hundred samples of pay data provided by DoorDash workers across the country finds that DoorDash pays the average worker an astonishingly low $1.45/hour, after accounting for the costs of mileage and additional payroll taxes borne by independent contractors. Nearly a third of jobs actually pay less than $0 after accounting for these basic expenses."

the backend for what i'm writing is really not complicated so i guess it's time to figure out how to add a front end
