``Twelve years after the birth of Uber, the country--the world--is still reckoning with how the on-demand economy has upended the market­place and people's lives. Companies running on gig work emphasize the upsides: Here's a job where you can be your own boss, set your own hours. They speak of the flexible and temporary nature of gig work, how most people do it part-time or to get back on their feet--points repeated before federal judges and in Facebook ads and New York Times op-eds. Jeffrey Fang represents something else: the long tail of the economy that Uber built.''
