Invisibles – exploitation in the digital world of work | DW Documentary.
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.1 heart
Right now, however, the extreme asymmetries of knowledge and power that have accrued to surveillance capitalism abrogate these elemental rights as our lives are unilaterally rendered as data, expropriated, and repurposed in new forms of social control, all of it in the service of others’ interests and in the absence of our awareness or means of combat.

The only weapon of power, its only strategy against this defection, is to reinject the real and the referential everywhere, to persuade us of the reality of the social, of the gravity of the economy and the finalities of production.
