Are Airbnb and Uber Saviors of the Middle Class?

Steven Hill, a senior fellow athe New America Foundation is no fan of the companies, as apparent from the title of his recent book, “Raw Deal: How the ‘Uber Economy’ and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers.”

While he thinks Airbnb is disingenuous about how many professional landlords use its site, he sympathizes with the Airbnb hosts who rent a single spare room for extra income.
