They’re private businesses. They should be allowed to crumble and fall like most other business when they go south. They don’t bail out people when they lose their job or something and can’t meet repayments. They kick them out of their house and sell it for far far less than it’s worth so as to cover their own losses and leave the person/family broke and homeless. Pack of protected crooks.
