if i miss a content warning, mess up fedi etiquette, am blind to my own biases and thus show my whole buns, interact with you in a way you do not like, or anything else that is unpleasant — please tell me. i would prefer privately, but am not too picky about that. i will absolutely not do an anger at you.
youtube strike & labor theory Show more
I am seeing some good-faith disagreement about whether people who make Youtube videos count as workers *for Youtube* and I'd like to offter my 2¢:
I think they do, structually speaking, for the mere fact that there are people who make their living off of advertising checks that YouTube cuts to them. Saying that they're not workers would be like saying that Anderson Cooper doesn't work for CNN. They're who people go to the website for: if, hypothetically, everyone stopped making youtube videos tomorrow, the traffic to the website would immediately wither and die.
The busines situation is more complicated for a bunch of reasons (CNN doesn't also own its own distribution channels, for one, and Anderson Cooper gets paid a salary), but the basic principle is the same, I think.
The fact that YouTube pays people to make content shows that they understand this: their business model depends on other people using their platform to make entertainment.
