    In the immediate term, we should be fighting for things like shorter workweeks, steeply increased overtime pay, lower retirement ages, expanded social security, family leave, paid vacation, paid sick leave, child allowances, and sabbaticals.

...so that we can spend more time driving for Uber, taking that 2nd job at Domino's, etc.

If the protected class has a wage and hours guarantee but the unprotected class doesn't, the unprotected class will just hustle harder, making the protected class feel ever more threatened.
