Landlord, Car Dealer Offer Buyers Layoff Assistance
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. For the ranks of the unemployed a promise of a small bailout. A landlord with apartments in Ohio, Florida, North Carolina and Texas is offering a layoff proof lease. Sign for a year, make three rent payments on time and if you get laid off, he offers up to two months rent free. And in Florida, AutoNation is offering to cover six months of car payments for anyone who takes the plunge and buys in these hard times, and then gets laid off.
It's MORNING EDITION.
