Warren defends Uber-ization of labor // Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator denounced by some as a “far-left” socialist radical, came out in support of the “Uber-ization” of the labor force. “We’re not going to stop tech so that lots of people will work,” Sen. Warren said at yesterday’s Code Conference. “That’s like saying, ‘Let’s get rid of heavy equipment and let people dig with a spoon.'” // "how the on-demand economy is creating full-time jobs out of part-time work. Several startups, like Uber, rely on contract employers. Google CEO Larry Page has predicted that part-time working will soon be the norm." // marketplace lowers prices! its inevitable. Except there is regulation and a guaranteed income /w around minimum wage. // Wall Street - Capitalism - rootless global corporations (& money have no conscience) has no self-limiter. Is no stakeholder in a local economy has no shared economic interest whether in a local economy nor country. //
