Cycling with the new bellboys: "Our rights forgotten by everyone" (In bicicletta con i nuovi fattorini: “I nostri diritti dimenticati da tutti”)

5 February 2018 - Workers who deliver food at home: "We are not autonomous, give us a contract". The rider can not do without it. While talking he looks, compulsively, at the smartphone. "It has become an obsession," he admits. For Cecilia, 24, everything happens through that cellphone. "Hours of service, addresses, notifications for deliveries and payments, assessments of restaurateurs and customers". This digital stress is worth an average pay of 200 euros a month.
