Join author Steven Hill in a conversation about his book Raw Deal: How the "Uber Economy" and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers. Raw Deal challenges conventional thinking about the Sharing Economy, and the hype celebrating this new economy, by showing why the vision of the "techno sapien" leaders and their Ayn Rand libertarianism is a dead end. Silicon Valley technology and Wall Street greed is thrusting upon us the latest economic fraud: the so-called "sharing economy," with companies like Uber, Airbnb and TaskRabbit allegedly "liberating workers" to become "independent" and "their own CEOs," hiring themselves out for ever smaller jobs and wages while the companies profit. Date:Time: Tuesday, December 8th, 2015, 7 PM with doors open at 6:30 PM Admission: $5-20 sliding scale; no one turned away for lack of funds
