Al Rudnitsky: Landlords should stop collecting rent from small businesses

Published: 3/26/2020 2:37:02 PM

Local mayors and other leaders should consider using their bully pulpit to urge landlords who collect rent from small businesses to forego or postpone their collection. Banks can do the same with landlords making mortgage payments on properties they rent to small businesses.

This would be in everyone's interest. One cannot collect rent from an empty store.
