Between equal rights, force decides.
At a time when traditional labour unions have been unable or unwilling to organise workers in precarious conditions due to factors including increased outsourcing of labour that previously used to be managed in-house, the appearance of digital platforms for distributing work on an on-demand basis, increased use of freelancing arrangements instead of regular employment, and a general drift towards atomisation and precarisation of workers, the dominance of neoliberal economics means that there is no shortage in the supply of exploitative employment practices. The IWGB, the Independent Workers of Great Britain, and other grassroots unions are leading the way in imposing a negative demand on the widespread exploitation and ill-treatment of precarious workers.
