Launch of the Fairwork Report “Gender and Platform Work: Beyond Techno-solutionism”

On July 03, 2023, Fairwork launched the first global report on gender and platform work. The research of the report “Gender and Platform Work” covers a period of four years in 38 countries. More than 180 platforms were considered and interviews were conducted with more than 5,000 platform workers. The report concludes that common practices in the platform economy, such as non-payment of a living wage, unsafe working conditions, and inadequate responses to gender discrimination, are associated with the risks of widening the gender wage gap, lowering labor force participation, and perpetuating gender inequalities.
