"They are taking us for a ride": The fight of Deliveroo riders is only the beginning ("Nos venden la moto": La lucha de los ‘riders’ de Deliveroo es solo el comienzo)

30 June 2017 - Following last week’s demonstrations, Deliveroo’s riders have called for a strike on Sunday. They ask for working conditions reducing job insecurity. The model of the British company, based on the delivery services provided by autonomous drivers, is just one example of the type of scheme behind the so-called ‘gig economy’. According to the latest forecasts, this type of jobs on demand will double in the next four years (Spanish: 30 June 2017 - Tras las movilizaciones de la semana pasada, los ‘riders’ de Deliveroo han convocado una huelga para el domingo. Reivindican unas condiciones de trabajo que reduzcan la inseguridad laboral. El modelo de la empresa británica, basado en los servicios de repartidores autónomos, es solo un ejemplo del tipo de esquema que se esconde tras la conocida como ‘gig economy’. Según las últimas previsiones, este tipo de empleos bajo demanda se duplicará en los próximos cuatro años.)
