    Drawing back from specific examples to consider resistance against platform capitalism this chapter shifts the analytical lens to consider key issues in a wider context, including considering how workers build power in different situations. This involves developing the three parts of the book’s argument: the role of technology and the technical composition of work, the importance of social composition for understanding how workers engage with work and resistance, and the varying forms of struggle that constitute political composition.
