Hillary Clinton & Fred Wilson zur Gig Economy

In einer Rede hat sich Hillary Clinton auch zur Gig Economy geäußert:

Meanwhile, many Americans are making extra money renting out a small room, designing websites, selling products they design themselves at home, or even driving their own car. This on-demand, or so-called gig economy is creating exciting economies and unleashing innovation.
But it is also raising hard questions about work-place protections and what a good job will look like in the future.

Der Großteil von „Silicon Valley“1 scheint Clinton’s Aussage als Angriff verstehen zu wollen. Der Venture Capitalist Fred Wilson ist reflektierter und stellt die, aus meiner Sicht, richtigen, ergänzenden Fragen:

Can you be a freelance worker if you don’t own the data about your work and earnings history and be able to take it with you when you leave a platform or export it to a third party for optimization? Can you be a freelance worker if you are indentured to your employer because they loaned you the money to purchase the asset you are using to earn your income? I think the answer to both is obviously no. But there are companies who argue that it is yes.

  1. Wie immer ist hier weniger der Ort als das Mindset gemeint.
