In this episode, we have a conversation with Alex Press, a staff writer at Jacobin magazine who covers a range of topics around labor in the United States, including the gig economy.
We talked about the gig economy, what’s at stake for companies in and workers in categorizing workers as employees, contractors, or some new third category, and the divided response from organized labor over gig work.
