This article appeared in The Guardian yesterday

“It’s wrong to move straight from talking about automation to the need
for a basic income, without talking about what is happening in the
workplace and how we address that. Our work has produced quite a
significant body of evidence that some industries are combining
advances in technology with degraded work and conditions.”
- Peter Nolan, professor of work at Leicester University and director
of the Centre for Sustainable Work and Employment Futures

Hmmm, would they be talking about the working conditions inside
Amazon.com warehouses ubiquitous in large metro areas? I bet Uber has
some of this in their app, too...
