Abstrakt

The potential contribution of sharing economy to the global
economy is increasing. Despite this, there are unanswered questions
related to corporate social responsibility in the sharing economy. In this
article, we draw from a case study on Uber and its contractors to
understand the precarious work entangled to their relationship in two
contexts. By unpacking the motivating and demotivating dimensions of
this relationship in two context, the United States and Finland, we explore
the underlying phenomenon of precarious work in the context of sharing
economy.
