Why the digital gig economy needs co-ops and unions

Abstract:
We live in a world in which it is increasingly possible to use online labour markets to outsource work directly to any corner of the planet.

But the fact that we now have millions of people around the world all competing for the same jobs threatens to undermine a range of working standards.
