A World to Win: Work Without the Worker w/ Phil Jones

October 14, 2021

This week, Grace speaks to Phil Jones, researcher at Autonomy and author of Work Without the Worker: Labour in the Age of Platform Capitalism. They discuss whether what we refer to as automation actually relies on the proliferation of poorly paid microwork around the world, who does this work under what conditions, and how workers can start to organise to resist their exploitation at the hands of some of the most powerful companies in the world.
