We're entering the era of the peer-to-peer gig economy: Uber, Air BnB, etc. New economic models mean some stand to make a lot of money, while those who do the actual work stand to lose a lot through labour exploitation (reports of Uber drivers making less than minimum wage, for example).

This is one of the reasons I have lately become more interested in the co-op movement, where workers own the platforms and share in the profits.

@clintlalonde Yes, I'm following this idea too. I think we need to do (and teach) more than just "the bad future is inevitable".
