Quality work on the fringes

Better markets

01A - HomepagesOur technology has already handled millions of dollars’ worth of hourly bookings. It upends current assumptions about platforms for “gig” work.

 

 

It has to be tech.

The bedrock issue for gig workers is quality of marketplace. If you have a job you typically enter the labor market every few years when it’s time to move on. An irregular can be in-and-out several times a day in search of the next assignment. The way their market is constructed, whose interests it serves, its breadth and depth, the overheads imposed, the data and tools shared; that’s what determines life chances.

Any scalable, sustainable, market needs to be software based. These transactions are too fiddly to handle sustainably any other way.

The right market will make any intervention uniquely cost effective. It will drive protections, pro-rated, benefits plus value-adding functions for intermediaries and other stakeholders.

The markets needed are challenging to build and launch. As with commercial platforms, the responsibilities of market operators could be abused. That’s why our markets are under accountable local control in each city.
