Re: Repeated Typo!

I think the value is from all those types with money salivating at the thought of an "on demand" economy where the actual workers aren't employed, so you don't have to provide them with health care, holiday, rights, and so on, and they're eternally grateful for the apps that direct them to whatever scraps they can pick up from day to day. Scraps, naturally, on which you take a hefty commission.

Uber is aiming to become the 21st century version of a foreman at the docks, deciding which of the many people queuing up each day are going to get work
