Amazon Is the New Factory

LeftStreamed — Recorded in Toronto, 24 October 2018

Amazon Is the New Factory:
Warehouse Labour in the Digital Economy

Between your Amazon home delivery and Jeff Bezos’ bottom line is a platform-based system that organizes a massive workforce, speeds up work, and contributes to making jobs more precarious and unstable. At this session of The Capitalism Workshop, Alessandro Delfanti discusses the changing nature of work, class composition, and the evolving relation between capitalism and technology, based upon his recent study of an Amazon warehouse in Italy.

Alessandro Delfanti teaches at the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology at the University of Toronto. He was one of the key organizers of Log Out! Worker Resistance Within and Against the Platform Economy.
