The traditional connection between workers, and a specific company that does that work, would be severed as specific tasks are outsourced to a variety of specialized firms that perform one of the tasks involved in producing the final product. We are a long way from this imagined future. On the other hand, it is derived from extending current trends into the future. The future of labor may be something like the future imagined in this article.
