“Services like Uber and online freelance markets like TaskRabbit were created to take advantage of an already independent work force; they are not creating it. Their technology is solving the business and consumer problems of an already insecure work world. Uber is a symptom, not a cause.”
Louis Hyman, an economic historian, writing in the New York Times
He has a new book coming out soon – Temp: How American Work, American Business, and the American Dream Became Temporary.
