NYC Airbnb crackdown hurts housecleaners.
The Airbnb hosts themselves aren't the only ones affected by the "crackdown" on illegal listings in NYC. Also affected are some cleaning companies and housecleaners whose business was largely oriented to doing cleaning at Airbnb listings.
One of the upshots from this story seems to be that it's important to realize that short term rentals can provide work and income for more people than standard long term rentals would -- which dont' require cleaning, co-hosts, key delivery/entry services, Uber or Lyft rides, "Airbnb Experiences", or travelers spending money at businesses in the surrounding community .
