“When we think “gig economy,” we tend to picture an Uber driver or a TaskRabbit tasker rather than a lawyer or a doctor, but in reality, this scrappy economic model — grubbing around for work, all big dreams and bad health insurance — will soon catch up with the bulk of America’s middle class."

Context

This quote from an opinion piece in the NYT, but Ruth also happens to be a speaker at the most recent TedX Marin.

Side observation.

“TedX Marin are very proud of being in Marin … home to so many different thinkers, writers and academics.
This is Marin afterall!”

Said at a kick off event for this years event on the highly competitive nature of getting to be selected … I kid you not (I was there).

Interesting then that Ruth lives and works in Berkeley!
