Technology and Worker Power • Commune
To build tech-worker power, one has to deal with the workforce in its current, fragmented, and alienated state, and from there find a way to unify workers. To successfully organize the tech industry will require programmers organizing with gig economy workers, contingent workers, and contract workers.

There is a need to organize beyond the privileged suites of the tech campus: in warehouses, in cafeterias, in bus pools. “[In the TWC], there’s an emphasis on creating an authentic community network,” Ari explains, “that’s not based on your employer, a particular skill or job type, professional development, or token identity group. We’re building relationships between people as workers, based on what affects us materially.” Ari focuses in particular on getting contractors and contingent workers the basic benefits their informal contract denies them. “Contracting is a way for tech companies to get around having to provide things like health insurance, PTO, and parental leave.” In many companies, over half the workers are contracted.
