The UBER "Share The Crumbs" New World Economy –  Labor Communication, Media
and the Smart Phone  –  Stanford University July 26, 2015
The development of communications technology has led to major changes and
disruption in the production chain. Today through the internet, hundreds of
millions of workers are now linked together. Tech workers and millions of
other workers are now tethered to the internet 24 hours a day and every
keystroke can now be watched by their employers or used as a powerful
organizing and communication tool.
Apps are also being use to put workers in a temporary part time economy and
change their conditions of work. Many are affected,  from taxi workers to
call centers as well as healthcare workers and workers in every industry.
The gig economy is one where more and more workers have no security and
benefits. It is a "share the crumbs" new world,

LaborTech 2015 will look at how this new technology is being used on and by
workers and how workers are using communication technology to organize and
strengthen democratic rights.
It will also provide instruction on how to build labor channels that can
get the stories out to workers and the public locally and internationally.

The introduction of technology into the workplace, the labor and human
rights of all workers including the large number of immigrant workers in
the tech industry is a prime focus of this conference.
LaborTech 2015 will look at these issues and how labor can address these
issues here and internationally.

The Gig Economy- How this is changing the conditions of labor and our lives

• More and more workers are being pushed into the Gig Economy-What does
this mean?
• How workers and unions can stream our stories and struggles and build
• Using the Smart Phone.
How your union or labor group can get your stories out using smart phones
and streaming technology

• How is tech being used on the job and for workers struggles &
• What labor rights do you have on the job with new technology & How are
workers using video and communication media to get out their stories and
• Techsploitation: How immigrant workers and senior tech workers face
in the tech industry and what you can do about it.
