The WorkerTech Podcast - Episode 3: The Gig Economy

  • 41:03
  • January 10th 2019

This Tech for Good Live podcast is a three-part series about WorkerTech, made in conjunction with our friends at Bethnal Green Ventures.

In this third and final episode we wrestle with the concept of the Gig Economy and talk about precarious workers. Is the Gig Economy inherently bad and exploitative, or does it provide freedom and flexibility? Is it possible for a WorkerTech solution to exist in this space? We sit down and chat with Uber, Zinc, Cabfair and whole host of others as we try to get an answer.

Throughout this series we spoke to Dan Tomlinson from the Resolution Trust, Linda Wickstrom from Accenture, Fabian Wallace-Stephens from the Royal Society of Arts, Unman Mohamed from Organise, Guy Levin from Uber, Duncan McCann from the New Economic Foundation, Rachel Carey from Zinc and of course, Jessica Stacey from Bethnal Green Ventures.
