Abstract

In The Fight Against Platform Capitalism: An Inquiry into the Global Struggles of the Gig Economy, Jamie Woodcock argues that we are witnessing the emergence of an increasingly organised and transnational movement of platform workers against capitalism. The book shines in drawing from workers’ experiences to develop an understanding of the current contours of political struggle in the platform economy, writes James Muldoon. The Fight Against Platform Capitalism: An Inquiry into the Global Struggles of the Gig Economy. Jamie Woodcock. University of Westminster Press. 2021.
