Middle Class Homelessness: Safe Parking Lots to Sleep In

Here is an imaginative intervention for sleeping arrangements for the homeless. Rent out a church parking lot so people can sleep safely in their cars without being hassled by the police. Who’s sleeping in those cars? Clerks, library assistants, collections agents! This is a practical example of how bad the economic crisis is. Even white collars workers don’t have a place to live.

Happy Black Friday!
