This story highlights the issues of micro labor, classism, and workers’ rights during an event unveiling the new mayor’s policies that push for technology driven labor. A crisis arises, highlighting pitfalls of the showcased technology and endangering everyone at the event. The janitor’s unique and intimate knowledge of the setting might be the only path returning the crowd to safety.
