Ralph talks to Professor Trebor Scholz about how to organize workers in the new “Uber” economy. And David and Steve ask Ralph about what he thought about the Trump Inauguration speech. Plus, listener questions.
Trebor Scholz is a scholar-activist and Associate Professor for Culture & Media at The New School in New York City and is an expert in the new digital labor economy. His books Uber-Worked and Underpaid. How Workers Are Disrupting the Digital Economy and Ours to Hack and to Own introduce the concept of platform cooperativism, a more humane workplace, which takes the worker-owned cooperative idea to the app store.
