Online – Ethics and the Uberization of Work

April 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Presented by:
Dr. Gerald (Jerry) Davis
Fellow, Stanford University
Professor of Sociology, University of Michigan

What are those hired to do tasks to think of the duties and responsibilities they have to those who hire them in this Uberization of the workforce?
