Microphones or Megaphones? Avenues towards Crowdworker Voice
Sprache des Vortragstitels:
In her talk "Microphones or Megaphones? Avenues towards Crowdworker Voice", Elke will present evidence from the German crowdwork field that gives insights into different avenues for crowdworker voice. One avenue is through crowdwork platforms themselves, which provide limited voice options. Another avenue is through a new private regulatory initiative, the "Crowdwork Agreement" concluded by the German trade union IG Metall and several crowdworking platforms to set standards for decent crowdwork and provide complaints mechanism for crowdworkers. The presentation critically discusses the kinds of voice regimes created by these alternative forms of regulation.
