Thank you for working yourself to death. NEXT!

“Writing for The New Yorker, Jia Tolentino documents stories of several people — a nine-month pregnant Lyft driver, for instance — who contribute to companies that work on the model of gig economy. Through these tales, Tolentino underscores an increasingly growing pattern in the Silicon Valley (and elsewhere) where companies offer hard-labor contracts to people, pay them peanuts (with little liabilities), and yet find a reason to celebrate their business and encourage more to come onboard.” From: The Gig Economy Celebrates Working Yourself to Death – Slashdot

  1. Hi. So just to let you know, a coworker of mine has been causing me trouble and is continuing to claim that I am blogging at work, even though it has now been established that no, I am not posting during work hours. Since the complaints are continuing, I unfortunately feel that I need to stop using my usual website. *sigh* Since at this point you’re the only reader left who isn’t working in my office keeping tabs on everything I do, I figured I’d let you know where to look next:

    Hopefully since I haven’t been working on that project blog since 2006, it’ll stay off the radar.
    Thanks for reading.

    1. Ugh, I’m sorry about your coworker troubles — that super sucks. Thanks for letting me know the new address.

      BTW, if you need me to delete this comment for security reasons, just let me know and I’ll take care of it.
