The digital economy at work – integration and segmentation in hybrid labour markets
Platform work has sparked political and academic debates - often with a focus on low pay rates and fragmented working hours. However, recent surveys also point to that labour platforms may ease the transition to employment for those struggling to gain a foothold on the labour market.
A new research project at FAOS – financed by The Velux Foundation – aims to uncover the relationship between platform work and future employment with the Danish labour market as an empirical case. We combine traditional register data and new digital data from labour platforms to uncover dynamics of integration and segmentation of platform workers on and beyond the platform.
FAOS is currently advertising for two new ph.d.-students to be hired on the project.
