This week, Craig talks to Ben Wray from the Gig Economy Project who report on issues affecting gig workers and platform work around Europe and internationally. They discuss the new Platform Work Directive which will regulate and improve workers’ rights within the gig economy in Europe. They also talk about the implications of Brexit both in terms of how it affected the politics of the legislation within the EU and how gig workers in Britain may be missing out on these new protections.
