Some on-demand workers on platforms are organizing (Harvard Business Review)
September 24, 2021 — On-demand workers are beginning to fight back against platforms, according to the Harvard Business Review.
It refers to these efforts as “decentralized collective action,” and they include everything from insurance pools created by Jakarta rideshare drivers to an informal union of global musicians.
“Workers find and team up with each other in a peer-to-peer fashion; voice opposition on social media, through online forums, and to the media; undermine or challenge a platform’s normal operations; leverage the power of their audience or customers; and at times, leave platforms altogether for more worker-friendly alternatives,” according to the Harvard Business Review.
