Position Paper on Platform Work


Platform work, which is also referred to as the ‘gig economy’, ‘crowd work’, or ‘on-demand economy’, is among the new forms of work increasingly being taken up by young people.

Platform work is precarious and it is often young people from marginalised and vulnerable backgrounds who end up taking on most of this work.

Platform work, if regulated, can represent a great opportunity for young people; our goal therefore is to ensure the protection and dignity of all persons performing platform work.

This position paper outlines why young people have a stake in this discussion and what the European Youth Forum calls for in response to the European Commission's directive proposal.
