Towards a Fairer Gig Economy
'Towards a Fairer Gig Economy' is a small collection of articles examining the social and economic problems associated with the 'gig economy'. The gig economy includes a wide range of labour carried out by workers providing services as couriers, taxi drivers, online freelancers and more. Issues examined include an over-supply of labour, falling wages, long hours and poor working conditions. Each article makes suggestions for how these problems can be addressed and how a fairer gig economy can be built: including through regulation, collective bargaining and wider policy recommendations. The collection's contributors include cycle couriers, union organisers, academics and researchers.
The collection is edited by Mark Graham and Joe Shaw, and its contributing authors are: Janine Berg, Christina Colclough, Mags Dewhurst, Dawn Gearhart, Philip Jennings, Guy McClenahan, Trebor Scholz, Six Silberman, Nick Srnicek and Valerio De Stefano.
