How the factory model is irrelevant in the modern era

When labor is dependent on management for the factory and the machines and the systems they use to do their work , the relationship would have issues associated with power and control.

This way the factory needs labor for sure but labor needs a factory.In the factory age therefore it has always been easier for the management to replace labor than for labor to find a factory.

In the modern era of the hyper connected world however the means of production = a laptop computer with internet connectivity.

A mere thousand dollars of investment and a modern day knowledge worker gets an entire factory.
