Sharif Street Lobbies for Predatory Lenders

Go read the Daily News.

Also, check out tomorrow's Philadelphia City Paper for all the info on a smackdown happening in the 2nd Ward.

(From Dan- Check out the Center for Responsible Lending's Fact Sheet on Payday lending to see just how repugnant the practice is. Sharif should be ashamed.)

I dug around in the City Paper and couldn't figure out what Ward 2 thing you were talking about...

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has an article on the high cost of payday loans, their predatory nature and some interesting attempts to offer alternatives in low-income communities.

paycheck poverty

wouldn't it be nice if Sharif was supporting an alternative to payday loans?
