Bringing the Platform Co-op "Rebel Cities" Together: An Interview with Trebor Scholz | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Trebor Scholz, Associate Professor for Culture & Media at the New School and author of the book Uber-Worked and Underpaid: How Workers Are Disrupting the Digital Economy (Polity, 2016).

I talked to him about this young movement, its rise, and the steps ahead.
