Gig economy fleeces workers, fills pockets of billionaires (Your letters)

Letter-writer responds to commentary by entrepreneur Mitchell Patterson extolling the virtues of Uber and Airbnb.

… Maybe it would be more beneficial for the whole of our Upstate economy to keep Uber and Airbnb out. More true jobs are what is needed and with Uber et. al., many, many, true jobs will be lost while creating more money-sucking entrepeneurs with short-sighted social principles. They seem to have no compunctions to how they make their billions. This is the Wall Street motto: Vacuum up money wherever you can find it and never mind the unintended consequences.
