The growth of digital labor platforms may require an international strategy for employee protections and managing the effects of shifts in labour (Wilkinson, 2016).  Wilkinson (2016) explains limitations in national strategies for explaining shifts in employment in the job-scarce economy and suggests international collaboration.  Mehta and Awasthi (2019) explain how rising contractual and flexible jobs could lead to lower quality employment.  Vallas and Schor (2020) explains the types of digital labor platforms such as platform developers, cloud based freelancers, gig service workers, content producers, and micro tasking.
