T:WTF 004 – Uber’s Justin Spratt Talks the Gig Economy

The Gig Economy is huge and growing every day. As part of the future of work (FoW), we wanted to understand this phenomenon. Like blockchain, it has the potential to disrupt!

To get a better understanding of what is currently going on we chat with Justin Spratt. Justin shares on his personal views about the Gig economy.

The Gig Economy Bigger Picture

And while Justin is currently at UBER, this is not a podcast about Uber and what is happening at Uber. It is a more in-depth look at the current situation and discussion around this topic.

As some of you may know, both Brett and I have worked for a gig economy company called M4Jam. It was a great idea that did not live up to its potential. But that’s a whole other story!

The point is that we joined the business given the potential that micro-jobs have to change the world.

The idea is to give people a way people to earn small amounts of money doing different, small job. You want to enable people to utilising the under-used resources they currently have.

This could be an asset, labour, time or any other form of resource.

The Potential To Change The World

In a country like South Africa, this is huge. We have one of the worst Gini Coefficients in the world and something needs to be done. The desperation and despair that most people live in today is extreme.

This was an interesting chat with Justin – who was suffering from a cold! So we really appreciate him taking the time and sharing!

Enjoy

Thanks for Listening!
