WASHINGTON — Going along the liberal refrain of income inequality, an advocacy group for tenant rights published a list of landlords from the technology sector in the Bay Area to protest eviction practices.
Reuters reported that the group, Anti Eviction Mapping Project, published their so-called “Dirty Dozen” list to protest rising housing costs, rent and cost of living for Bay Area tenants.
The group, and others, blame the technology industry for contributing to the rising costs for local residents. There have been blockades of commuter buses that ferried workers from their homes downtown to taken to work south of San Francisco. Protesters blame the likes of Facebook, Google and Yahoo for their current housing problems.
Several high-ranking employees from those tech companies and others were on the list.
