You didn't read the article. The author decries how folks must toil and "cant persue their own personal visions"...which probably means ...doing things ...like being vloggers and blogger, etc.

I have read several paragraphs and I still haven't gotten to where he gives actual examples of what he calls "bullshit jobs".

Those are rather essential tasks.

They may suck to do, and may not look good on your resume. But they are hardly "bs jobs".
