Kristy Milland, 3rd year Psychology student, recently travelled to Brussels to attend a conference hosted by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies titled The future of digital employment and working conditions in Europe:
What does the new internet/data economy means for services and work developments?
There, she participated in a roundtable policy debate on U.S. experiences of new forms of labour organisations. Kristy has been a long-time advocate for the rights and needs of works on Amazon Mechanical Turk, an online service that offers low-cost labour for various types of workers. Congratulations, Kristy!
