THE NEW WEB SLAVES: AMAZON’S MECHANICAL TURK

Category: Current Affairs
Duration: 1 x 26’
Production year: 2015
Director: Baptiste Des Monstiers

Synopsis

Iconographic research at 0.05USD/hr. Translation jobs at 0.02USD/hr. The giants of the net found a simple way to circumvent labor legislations: they invented the mini-jobs. Simple tasks, with even simpler wages: a few cents - without pay sheets and free of any charge. A trick that allows them to escape the law, regardless of the country of origin of the Internet user, and which is inspired by an old scam of the 18th century: the "Mechanical Turk".

Produced by Upside Television.
