Gig Economy Around the World
October 23, 2020 @ 14:00 - 18:30 BSTFree
How does the experience of platform workers compare among Argentina, the Netherlands and India? How many gig workers rely on multiple applications to generate full-time income? What is the median monthly wage on different platforms and across countries?
In this interactive virtual event – Gig Economy Around the World – we will share unique insights on the questions above based on survey results of a large-scale ongoing WageIndicator study on platform workers.
The event is meant to engage policy makers, labor organizers, academics and activists, in order to discuss the working conditions of platform workers in six different countries around the world: Argentina, India, the Netherlands, South Africa, Spain and United Kingdom.
We will present the survey results and generate a broader debate on the topic in order to compare and critically assess the gig economy across different geographic regions. Local regulations, best practices and intentions of various actors (e.g. trade unions, workers) to improve the working conditions of gig workers will be discussed.
