GigWatch has a new podcast episode out! More pods by syndicalists please.

It's in Swedish and they're following developments in the "gig economy" in Sweden.

Not sure why I'm writing this in English.

Company statement, workers rights, etc 

Companies are upset that the people who are doing all the work should be considered employees.

~"If we have to make sure that everyone who [works for us] is working in a safe environment this is never going to work out and foreign actors will take over the market and there will be no control or insight!"

Said by the CEO of Yepstr, Jacob Rudbäck.

Wish I had the spoons to fully describe what's happening.

@human_equivalent So that us Anglophones can feel left out for a change. Lol

@Capheind Heh, yeah, maybe!

Their previous episode was actually in English though. They interviewed a British expat in Denmark who worked with organizing food delivery workers there. So guess you ended up kind of included anyway!
