What’s Wrong with the Gig-Economy? A Conversation
June 1 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
In the guise of entrepreneurialism and individual freedom the gig-economy was once hailed as the solution to the ills of the degrading work relationships that formed the backbone of the capitalist economy. Legal scholar and activist Veena Dubal considers how organized workers have helped dispel this myth by speaking out about the darker side of the gig-economy. In conversation with legal labor historian William Forbath, Dubal will discuss these issues and more – from the future of the gig-economy to the potential for legal change in the aftermath of California’s Prop 22.
