30-year-old man evicted from parents home says he can't afford to move
Michael Rotondo has been ordered to pack up his belongings from his parents' house after they sued him. But there's one problem - he’s too broke to afford moving boxes.
Recently, a judge ordered Michael, 30, to move out of his parents' home in Camillus, New York, where he has been living rent-free for the past eight years, as reported by New York Post.
Michael's parents, Mark and Christina Rotondo, sued their son in order to force him to leave their home.
The unemployed millennial told The Post that he requires three months to move out or else he’ll appeal the judge’s ruling.
But now Michael, who has a young son, is attempting to use his lack of funds as a reason to prevent him from moving out.
“Mostly, I need to start packing my boxes so I can move,” he told Syracuse.com. “But I have to pay for the boxes, which might be a problem.”
In a recent interview with CNN, Michael said that he was jobless, but there’s at least one restaurant chain trying to change that.
Villa Italian Kitchen offered him a job and training at any one of its 250 locations across the country.
In a statement on Facebook, the restaurant wrote: 'At Villa, we feel for millennials, across the board. It’s tough out there. With that said . . . we’re offering you a store-level gig, complete with extensive training to get you up to speed, at any one of our 250 locations worldwide.'
'We heard your parents offered you $1,100 to get out. We’ll do you one better. Literally, one. Offer from us is on the table for $1,101 to come join our team. Consider it a signing bonus. We gotchu, bud,' the restaurant added.
Michael has been told that the Onondaga County sheriff’s deputies could forcibly remove him if he fails to move out and get a job by June 1.
