Ley Rider, a lot of noise for nothing
When platform applications were spreading, companies sold them as a technological advance, neutral as water and where who had the problem was who did not accept it, did not adapt to the future. In reality, über, deliveroo, glovo and many others “future” alike, of innovation, offer nothing: they limit themselves to adapting a new interface for the old concept of piecework, without a minimum wage guarantee or payment of the corresponding social contributions.
In other words, we are faced with a business model based on fraud and exploitation below the legal minimum guarantees for the worker. Platform economies are limited to changing the town square to hire day laborers, payments associated with the quantity produced, for a smartphone screen, nothing more than this.
