Response to IronLionZion (Original post)

4. My issue is not with Millennials (I like all the ones I know very much) - it's the gig economy.

I don't know how we - and they - got jobbed into thinking the gig economy is something the people who work it in actually would have chosen. There is so little workplace protection, no guaranteed income, no retirement, no employer handling your taxes, no sick leave......how do we get people to realize that the gig economy is going to screw up a lot of people forever? How do we get people to approach things (including Congress; I don't like the "Brand New Congress" idea at all), with a long view? How can people vote for a $15 minimum wage, then use Uber?
