Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

The coronavirus has ground society as we knew it to a halt. One in five Americans has been laid off or had their work hours reduced. Some states are ordering eviction moratoriums so people can count on a place to shelter during the outbreak. Federal mortgage regulators are ordering lenders to offer payment flexibility to homeowners and owners of apartment buildings.

Meanwhile, of course, more and more people are getting very, very sick. But for some landlords, the global economic and health catastrophe means business as usual.

What about you? Is your landlord being particularly, well, landlordly during this crisis? Send us your stories and screenshots to scoop@motherjones.com, subject line “landlord.” We’ll keep you anonymous and redact any identifying details. 

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
