The third and final episode of our podcast, Platform Predicament – Making Sense of a Datafied Future of Work, talks about possible alternatives to this neoliberal platform-based model of work. As examples, the episode highlights SEWA’s journey of evolving the platform model according to its members’ needs, LabourNet’s pilot platforms geared towards making platform-based work transparent and more regularized for gig workers, and the story of Equal Care, a platform that’s making care work in the UK more decentralized and humane.

Guest Speakers:

  • Jalajakshi CK (Labournet)
  • Salonie Hiriyadur (SEWA Cooperative Federation)
  • Emma Back (Equal Care)
