Like everything else, I’d like to stress that I don’t think liquidising labour is inherently a good or bad thing. It just is. I have a job doing social media for a night club, where they make me work set hours in an office away from the club. The whole process seems dumb. For a social media company to hold onto the relic of a by-gone working era (the set office hours) feels ridiculously backward.
I have another job that I work at casually, whilst handling their social media on the side. The social media aspect of my job is completely fluid, which allows me to do my work late at night when I’m most productive. If I have questions or need feedback from other staff, I’m still limited by their office hours and have often run into the problem of them thinking I can complete work at any hour. Both have their downside, but I believe flexibility and giving the employees the right to choose how they’d like to structure their work is the best way to go.
