Over the next few weeks, BBC’s Newsnight programme is running a series of episodes looking at how to ‘fix’ some key areas of our changing economy.

Last night (22 October), it focused on the so-called ‘gig’ economy. During the segment, a roving reporter spoke to a range of people who have to cope with precarious pay and worker rights, as well as Dr Jason Moyer Lee, general secretary of the Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain (IWGB). He spoke about the gig economy in general and Uber’s policy and business model in particular.

The whole Newsnight programme is available here until 20 November. The segment on the gig economy starts at 28:00, while Jason’s interview is from 31:55 to 32:45 and from 36:28 to 37:13.
