Why shipping container homes are overrated

"we have less affordable housing due to nimby groups"
From the John Oliver video here

Why isn't there a mainstream "all landlords are bastards" or something similar?
In the west I get that we simp for landlords, but I've never even heard of like a Cuban anti landlord movement or ussr or whatnot.

Contrary to what you'll hear ppl telling you, having a slumlord or landlord isn't a perk
Lots of conservatives tell me that having a landlord alleviates me of responsibilities bc landlord has to fix my unit. Now that I know more about construction, if I did as bad of a job as them at repairs, I'd be fired. On top of refusing to do many repairs forcing me to do my own repairs. Even though I pay them, multiple landlords are belligerent (swearing at me, threats), which i'd 10000% be fired for at my jobs. Not to mention half of them don't give notice before coming into my room for 'repairs' (not even something to repair, just an excuse)

Post anything rental / housing crisis related / just complain about your slumlord/landlord

Lemmy dot C.A.
A canadian-run community, geared towards canadians, but all are welcome!

Welcome to Lemmy.CA!

It is, however, not at all restricted to Canucks, or Canuck culture/topics/etc. All are welcome!

We have some rules here:

  • No bigotry - including racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, or xenophobia. Code of Conduct.
  • Be respectful. Everyone should feel welcome here.
  • No porn.
  • No Ads / Spamming.

(Much of this is all based on the well-established groundwork of the Lemmy home instance,
