Halt Rent, Mortgage, and Utility Payments During COVID-19 Outbreak

With the onset of COVID-19 in the United States, many thousands of workers have become temporarily displaced due to closures relating to the now global pandemic. A lot of workers who have been affected are gig workers and workers who rely on tips to earn an income. Nightclubs, theaters, bars, restaurants, and other destination-type venues are being hit the hardest right now, and most of us are wondering how we are going to pay rent, as we see the government passing legislation to bail out industries with our tax dollars. We need some assistance too!

I am proposing that the state of California institutes a hold on all rent and mortgage payments, payments for utilities, and put a moratorium on evictions until the threat of COVID-19 has been eradicated. It is simply unAmerican for us to live in fear of not being able to pay rent and to be evicted during a global pandemic that has been exacerbated by the inaction of our leaders in a country where we need to create gofundmes to subsidize our medical expenses.
