Ah! TO is making this exact point. Uber’s treating workers as a disposable commodity is “a real problem”.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

In a company like Uber, even the middle managers are programs. [Though the actual workers are still human, Uber.]

Many of today’s workers are programs, says TO, which means the people at the computers are their managers.
