The CDC has frozen evictions until January 2021 as new numbers show 12.6 million people are continuing to receive unemployment insurance. This comes as a new survey shows nearly a third of renters in single family or small multifamily properties, were unable to pay their rent in August. The primary reason given for not being able to pay is a loss of employment or reduced income, amid the coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers remain deadlocked on a new relief package. To take a deeper look at all of this, we are joined by RT America reporter Faran Fronczak. | Just Press Play has that segment and the best of other in-depth reports, exclusive interviews and controversial issues you may have missed during the week on RT America.
