Raw Deal: How the Uber Economy and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers could not be timely. With every jarring day our seems to be more seriously broken, the social contract erased, what remains of available work no longer offers us pensions or jobs with benefits. Gigs, freelancing and winging it seem to be the future. Steven Hill describes the predicament as a growing army of "freelancers, temps, contractors, part-timers, day laborers, micro-entrepreneurs, gig-preneurs, solo-preneurs, contingent labor, perma-lancers and perma-temps." Even if a job offers benefits, the high cost deductible for medical care is prohibitive. Hill warns that many of our future jobs will be taken by robots. Those in the young workforce coming up are overloaded with college loans they can hardly pay off. With our ever-growing population, higher living expenses and markedly fewer jobs,something has to give...  

This book is a must read for those concerned about how technology is disrupting the way we work and eroding the safety net, and how policy makers should respond to ensure that the growing number of workers in the gig economy earn adequate benefits.
Laura D-Andrea Tyson,  former Chair of the US Presidents Councilof Economic Advisors

Steven Hills groundbreaking book on the part-time, unstable Uber Economy shows how a new sub-economy becomes a work of law-flouting regress undermining full-time work.
