“The phrase ‘sharing company’ does not accurately describe the reality. The underlying concept is that participants are able to put their unused time to profitable use and benefit from shared projects and resources. Sharing implies cooperation among equals. Uber, Amazon Mechanical Turk (a task-sharing firm), and similar firms are actually highly hierarchical, dictating conditions of work without warning based upon the changing directives of aggressive investors.”
