Are Gig Workers Full-Time Employees? Debate Playing Out in Europe.
Whether or not gig workers will eventually be considered full-time employees is an ongoing debate in parts of the U.S. – think Prop 22 in California – but in Europe, many of these decisions are playing out for us, and the boys dig into this and other topics with special guest Matt Alder of The Recruiting Future Podcast. Also covered is how Google has been illegally underpaying thousands of temporary workers in dozens of countries, including many in Europe. Lastly, the show dives into the recent investment in startup Applied, known for its unbiased hiring service, and whether or not the trend of diversity hiring hits the same in Europe as it does in the U.S. and elsewhere.
