More people need more than 1 job to survive financially. More and more workers are referring to them as a side hustle. This is a cute thing, but it is also the sign of which state the society is in. Society. There was a time that a man could support his family and buy a house on just 1 salary.
There is in this quite some critics on platforms who are hiring people. Just look at the critics Uber gets and how, mainly local governments, are complaining about platforms like Uber and Airbnb. The platforms are recruiting new workers or locations with slogans “you’re ideal side hustle” or “earn some extra money on the side”.
But let’s have a look what’s happening. The platform economy shows what is needed: more income. It allows new sources of revenue for people. But why is this needed?
Let’s face it. Everything gets more expensive. Prices are going up. This is not without any reason. Due to inflation we always need to have more money to keep the current living conditions as standard.
IF we look at who is blamed for the platform economy than it is easy. The innovative companies and platform providers are to blame for what is happening in the world. They are the fault for the collapse of society. But is it? Are Uber and Airbnb making everything so expensive? Are they driving up prices? No, they are just offering everyone the opportunity to make money.
Central banks and governments are to blame for inflation. They are powering inflation. Inflation is the tax you won’t see. They simply inflate them out of debt. On the side helping society towards a collapse.
