The Automation Charade
The callout to "emotional labor" done by women and other underpaid/unpaid labor that silently backs many important aspects of society is a thought to pursue more in the discussion of the AI labor apocalypse.

Helping People Find Jobs and Local Businesses Hire | Facebook Newsroom
This is a good idea, addressing a gaping hole in the job recruiting universe beyond LinkedIn (and taking advantage of the fact that Facebook has become a psuedo-LinkedIn in other countries such as Japan), but some people will class this as a blue collar/low skill "LinkedIn for poor people" move. There's also the risk that this might also accelerate the race to the bottom for low pay jobs, inducing a "Zero Hours" style scenario as an endgame.

Trying to disconnect status/dignity from employment. Because current society sees people as failures if they are not actively employed at high pay. Employment provides resources (money), and sometimes indirectly provides status. So we use employment as a proxy signal for status.

株式会社Waris | 企業×ワーキングマザー 新しいワークスタイル | Just another WordPress site
Not quite crowdsourcing or a jobs site, but a matchmaker between companies and part-time/freelance women, particularly women coming back from childbirth. Well suited for startup support/enhancement where you need a pro some of the time. Seems more for project work, more on marketing and PR.

Sweetwater Spectrum
An autism specific residential facility/community with local employment opportunities. Interesting autism specific design issues like silent HVAC, and interior soundproofing such as low sound floors and anechoic ceilings.

Camphill Kimberton
A structured community for young and old Down's Syndrome people that provides assisted living and employment, focusing on handicrafts and management of the rural farmlands of the campus. People seem to think very highly of the place (it's nothing like being institutionalized, a lot of good social interaction as well as physical activity), but it isn't cheap

For businesspeople, English spells success : National : DAILY YOMIURI ONLINE (The Daily Yomiuri)
Interesting spread on increasing TOEIC scores for new hires. Which doesn't jive with reports of the increasingly inward looking/domestic focus of young japanese. The difference might be explainable due to to the TOEIC score report focusing on new full employees, who don't necessarily represent the bulk of young japanese (who are increasingly marginalized into contract/part-time jobs).

Group Talent | Hire effective teams. Not individuals.
Interesting HR recruiting/job board concept where you hire teams. Sort of the next step up from outsourcing to a team. This might have legs...
