DEUTSCHE ÜBERSETZUNG ZUM NACHLESEN Die deutsche Übersetzung dieses ersten Teils der zweiteiligen Folge zu migrantischer Arbeit und der Plattformökonomie kannst du hier nachlesen.
In part one of this two-part episode we discuss with Gabriella (Gorillas Workers’ Collective) and sociologist Dr. Moritz Altenried (Humbolt University Berlin) how the platform economy and migrant labour are related.
You can find Moritz' article on the relationship between migration and the gig economy here (open access). In his recently published book “The Digital Factory: The Human Labor of Automation” Moritz reveals the hidden human labor behind today’s digital tools, plattforms and services.
Discussing the societal relevance of the services delivery platform workers provide, Gabriella referred to an opinion piece by Emma Brockes published in the Guardian (August 11 2022).
In an interview with the German newspaper TAZ sociologist Nicole Mayer-Ahuja takes a look at the relation between a general intensification of work and a growing demand for instant delivery services to keep up with unpaid reproductive labour.
While the organizing at Gorillas Berlin started with hazardous working conditions in winter, heat waves in Europe pose their own risks, as this article on Sifted illustrates.
