App against app, so the precarious challenge the masters of the gig-economy (App contro app, così i precari sfidano i padroni della gig-economy)

3 March 2017 - Workers on demand try to fight exploitation using the same technological weapons as the giants of the web. The Fordist factory of old is gone, and the just-in-time contractors wander around in search of more social protection. Getting organised is not easy, but something has started to move in the fragmented universe of the gig economy. Take the stories of Giuseppe Cannizzo and Six Silberman, who in this time of atypical work-on-call make us understand that the trade union movement is not all a container of a twentieth-century tin.
