+143 NYC landlords and brokers are not evil and shouldn't be blamed for "unfair" prices and fees--they're cogs in a system driven by the extreme upper class, amirite?

I've definitely quit jobs that made me feel grossed out with what I had to do to got bonuses. So, Yes, believe it or not. Many people don't want money if it feels unethical to them.

Ok and this is the fault of the so-called extreme upper class how?

Demand is increased when the wealthy buy up the supply as investment properties that sit empty.

Ok so you as a renter can move to a city where demand is lower.

You're right OP, they're not evil. They're just following orders.

Raising rent isn't evil. ​ Limiting the supply of housing to keep rent or property values high is.

The only people with the power to do that is government. It's government that's often evil.

Sure, that's why they leave a property empty rather than lower the rent?

They own it. Do you think if you have a car you aren't using much you should be mandated to sell it? I mean used car prices are high so we should just make you sell that car you own.
