  13. 13. Negative Sides Of Platform Economy ⬛ Temporary jobs = income insecurity ⬛ At the moment, there are more registered contractors than employers ⬜ Less chance of being selected ⬜ Lower wages ⬛ Employers might favor better value for money (resulting from lower search costs) ⬜ Lower incomes for workers in rich countries ⬜ High wages for the best quality workers ⬛ Mobile labor markets can disrupt local services (e.g. Uber with taxi drivers) ⬜ This can have negative net effects on total employment 13
  14. 14. Future lookout ⬛ Dominant form of organizing – platform capitalism – could be replaced by platform cooperativism ⬜ More power to workers ⬜ Platform could grow by replication vs. scaling ⬜ Businesses operating locally but cooperating globally 14
