On this weeks program Chris chats to Davis Clayton from the Gig Workers Hub currently based at Micro-labs, 227-229 Bourke Street, Melbourne. Davis talks about being a food delivery worker, how the Gig Workers Hub was created, outreach, facilities avaliable for delivery workers, the recent rise of the gig economy, how apps, literally running on autopilot, control how people work and pitfalls like hours of unpaid downtime, examples like Milkrun for living wage, recent developments like Closing Loopholes Act included in FairWork, Transport Workers Union delivery workers campaigns, despite being opposed to City of Melbourne protected cycle lanes

Please support their current GoFundMe fundraiser: Keep gig workers employed at the Gig Workers’ Hub to help the hub move to a new location.
