Trying to remember sci-fi short story: Dystopia with all labour scripted

A year or two ago I read a sci-fi short story, it was freely available online. The first half is a chillingly plausible dystopia where all human workers use headsets feeding them step-by-step instructions, turning nearly the entire workforce into automatons. (Starting with fast food outlets but eventually subsuming nearly all professions.) The second half is a less convincing techno-utopia in Australia.
