THE NEW WEB SLAVES: AMAZON’S MECHANICAL TURK
How the Internet giants are circumventing labour legislation
The giants of the net have found a simple way to circumvent labor laws: they have invented the micro-jobs. Simple tasks with minimal wages, i.e. a few cents without the paperwork.
A trick that allows them to bypass the labor laws regardless of the country of origin of the employer, and which takes its inspiration from a 18th century scam called the "Mechanical Turk".
