Perhaps I was thinking it was very insensitive and politically incompetent of whoever in the Gov make the decison to have that date that Furlough ends the same as the day in which homelessness would be all over news & the web on homelessness day. Could they not have had google / looked at a calendar in advance ? its enough of a worry to think you may lose your job at the end of furlough, than be reminded that it may lead to homelessness.

  23. TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Long delayed evictions are rolling out more than a month after the end of a federal moratorium that had protected tenants, including some who hadn’t paid rent for many months because of the coronavirus pandemic. It is far from the tsunami many people predicted, but the lockouts now starting up are nevertheless devastating for families still trying to catch up while the pandemic churns on. Officials say some landlords seem to be holding off on lockouts so they can get repaid with assistance money. https://fortwaynesnbc.com/2021/10/06/evictions-begin-as-us-ban-ends-but-not-the-spike-feared/ https://www.independent.co.uk/news/california-new-york-tucson-new-jersey-south-carolina-b1933401.html
