One of the biggest questions hanging over tech is how fast-growing companies manage their labor costs.
This is an acute issue in the on-demand world, where labor is a major portion of costs. Uber, for instance, has fought legal battles over whether its drivers are employees or independent contractors. Lyft has faced similar pressures.
Then there’s WeWork. The co-working firm has been embroiled in a labor dispute with its former cleaners, contract workers who were laid off en masse after attempting to unionize.
