Film: What convenience is costing us
From delivering food and driving ride shares to tagging images for AI, millions of people around the world are finding work task by task online. The gig economy is worth over 5 trillion USD globally, and growing. And yet the stories of the workers behind this tech revolution have gone largely neglected. The Gig is Up reveals how the magic of technology we are being sold might not be magic at all.
