On the other hand: gig platforms have a great liberating potential. Freedom to work wherever, whenever on whatever you want.
And a great levelling potential. Offering people across the globe access to work on a single market. Potentially everyone, from Lagos to Bangalore to NYC can do a design gig for a marketing firm in London!
But that implies freedom to take your business elsewhere. Leave fiverr for sixxerr if one is treating you badly. To ride for Ünder if Über demands too much.
