Chinese Movement Working to Enforce Fair Labor Practices Into Software
A really interesting article by MOTHERBOARD about the 996.ICU movement. The group is working through GitHub to try to get companies to treat workers fairly and abide by local labor laws.
Chinese workers are attempting to use an open source licensing agreement to code fair working conditions into software used by corporations.
The plan is part of a protest movement primarily hosted on GitHub, a website software developers used to collaborate and track projects. At more than 1760,000 stars—a way to bookmark GitHub repositories—and growing, the movement’s GitHub is currently the site’s most popular repository. Users have translated an explanatory section of the repository into 25 different languages.’
