  • Digital Workerism, a Framework

    Jamie Woodcock

    Chapter from the book: Woodcock, J. 2021. The Fight Against Platform Capitalism: An Inquiry into the Global Struggles of the Gig Economy.


    This chapter outlines the framework of digital workerism that underpins this book. It sketches in detail the threefold framework of class composition developed by Notes from Below, involving the technical (the organisation of work), social (the organisation of workers into class society), and political (the forms of workers’ resistance and self-organisation) composition of work. Building on this, it outlines an argument about workers’ inquiry in the context of platforms, particularly focusing on new labour processes and the potential for new forms of struggle.
