Invisibles: Clickworkers

YEAR: 2021 | LENGTH: 1 part (42 minutes)  |  SOURCE: DW

description:

Services from Amazon, Uber and Airbnb are available at the touch of a screen. Yet who are the workers who fulfill our wishes when we click? How much do they earn? Do their jobs have benefits? This documentary delves into the world of workers behind the apps.

Companies like Facebook, Amazon, Deliveroo, Booking.com and Tinder all have in common that their employees are forming a new, exploited class of digital economy labor. The tens of thousands of people who work in the app sector earn low wages. The filmmakers look at the daily lives of “clickworkers” – the men and women who deliver packages and food, or work high-stress content management jobs for little money.
