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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3qt04mYIno&feature=youtu.be
