What does it really mean to work for yourself? To work with your boss, not for them?
‘Sorry We Missed You’ answers those questions with a story of unsteady hours, isolation, and scarcity of time.
It’s a story of a family working in the gig economy, at the mercy of companies that use computers to control the daily grind.
Five million workers across the United Kingdom now count as self-employed. The number of gig workers has doubled in three years.  One in nine workers in the United Kingdom  are in work where they are at the mercy of their boss and where their time is not their own. But this also means there are millions of people who share this reality in common.
What would it mean to come together with fellow workers and win a better kind of work?
More and more gig workers are joining together to get control at work:
If you work in the gig economy you can join with others in trade unions that are taking back control. Find the right union to join: tuc.org.uk
If you work in the gig economy or on a zero-hours or insecure contract, contact Better Than Zero: a solidarity network of workers in precarious jobs.
Or visit STUC to find out what unions in Scotland are doing to equip workers in the data-driven gig economy.
