    That's the thing about the gig economy - if you're in it, that means you're willing to take the job for shitty pay with no benefits and no security. You are, by definition, cheaper and worse than the people who won't work gig-to-gig.

Sounds a lot like the I.W.W.'s hayday to me.

I've been paying too much attention to the economy since 2008. Every macroeconomist worth his salt will point out that inequalities and worker protections are as bad or worse than they were during the Gilded Age.

I'm going to a votech school. It has a multimillion-dollar CNC lab. It shares a zip code with Microsoft.

it has a food bank.
