So what, exactly, is the punchline here?

I think the punchline is that we should challenge Uber’s message that having a side hustle is part of an easygoing, well-appointed life (like the one that they present in their ads). Side hustle jobs are definitely necessary for many people, but we shouldn’t be OK with the idea that “everyone needs a side hustle.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
