It's a bit brain-scrambling reading stuff about poor bastards desperately scrabbling for cash via an enforced mechanism that's now ubiquitous and trivial ("my phone"), which describes them as part of "the tech economy".
No, they're the pawns in a tech-enabled change to the previous equilibrium of humans and mechanisms/processes. And typically the losers therein.
