Twitter Thread: Star Trek and the Inhumanity of Gig Economies

Twitter user _danilo uses an example from Star Trek to explain some of the dangers of having an industry that lacks face-to-face interaction with its own workers. It's scary enough to imagine your job being done by a cold, calculating robot, but what if your boss's job was done by a cold, calculating robot?
