Evicted During the Pandemic from The Daily
For many years now, we have seen a housing and eviction crisis occurring, not just in Ocean County, but across the country. This is due to a wide range of issues, all of which have been made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting increase in unemployment. Many Americans are finding themselves in a deep debt hole with their landlords.
The Daily, a podcast produced by the New York Times, recently shared an episode highlighting the experience of Yolanda Jackson, a single mother of two in Georgia. The podcast tells the story of how she lost her job in March, causing her finances to run out, and eviction notices starting to appear. The show also features experts discussing the stimulus bill on the horizon and what the next months may look like for renters across the country.
