On this episode of ‘Technology, Together’ we have with us 2 guests, Dr. Balaji Parthasarathy and Pradyumna Taduri, who have worked extensively on deconstructing the platform economy in general and the state of platform labour within the Indian context. Drawing on their experiences in the Fair Work project, they discuss some of the ground realities surrounding platform work, the fundamental principles of fairness that they use to assess platform work, and what this could mean for all the actors involved in the long run.
