Experiences of platform workers in India and other countries?

  • It is often heard that the working conditions of platform workers are really bad. But is this true? 
  • Could it be that some platform workers, in India for instance, are quite happy with their jobs?
  • Which contracts are satisfactory?
  • Which platforms are considered the best by the workers or self-employed who find employment there?
  • Does it make sense to create Collective Agreements for platform workers?      

Over the next few years and WageIndicator Foundation will systematically collect answers to these and similar questions. At the same time we will gather more information about the working conditions of platform workers. We'll start by collecting data from platform workers in 6 countries. Check this page.
