What Job Do you Do for the Web? Take our Job Placement Quiz! #IWFW http://www.buzzfeed.com/markcmarino/whats-your-internet-job-as-imagined-as-characters-12dly …
The WebWorkers Respond (April 1, 2015)
The campaign backfires when Webworkers realize how much labor they’ve been contributing for free!
In general I do like working for the web. My favorite task is taking buzzfeed quizzes. But i do want better wages. #iwfw
If I have to comment “you are fireee” on a friend’s selfie one more time, I will set my iPhone on fire #iwfw
A Meeting Is Called at Nighthawks Bar. Is a Union forming? (April 4, 2015)
A group of disgruntled workers decided to meet to discuss working conditions on the Web.
Webworkers, do not submit to your exployers, but transform their Tweets & hash their hashtags into tools for change! #IWFW
Forever grateful that I can turn read-receipts off! Now there’s no way my boss can tell if I read his text or not >:) #iwfw
What Happened at Nighthawks’ Bar? (April 5, 2015)
Tycoonthropist getting wind of the event, sends in his private security forces, the Pingertons. Havoc breaks out. A riot? A rumble? Reports conflict.
Went to Nighthawk to learn more about working for the web. Info was great but I learned the most from the police who showed up. #iwfw
Wait! This is TUESDAY morning? I was in custody there like 48 hours!! I can’t count #IWFW and I don’t think they were real ppolice
Whose Side Are You On? Union or No Union? (April 6, 2015)
Now that the battle lines have been drawn, all Webworkers must decide will they rise up with the union or stand up for the corporate interests that run the Web.
Saturday night at Nighthawks the exployer showed his hand, now show him yours! Raise your Like hand in a fist! #IWFW
