The New Sharing Economy: Demise of Social and Labor Movements?

Abstract : This paper examines the new sharing economy as a matrix for social movements. Drawing from recent studies on the sharing economy worker's psyche, and the business mindset of the sharing economy companies and investors, we demonstrate that successful social movements may be practically impossible in a sharing-economy-dominated future. This premise is based on the tenet that the dramatic changes in the relationship to work by millennials, who contrary to their predecessors shun long-term engagement and physical communication, may ultimately render collective social movement and labor struggles unfeasible.
