Posted March 16, 2019 11:05:14In Australia, people who earn their living on foot are the backbone of the economy.
But what if you can get a job by doing some work for a living, without having to pay tax?
That’s what’s happening in Melbourne’s inner-west, where more than 1,500 people earn their livings on the back of the Electron platform.
The platform, which lets people sell their labour, is one of a growing number of businesses that are using technology to help them grow and employ.
Key points:Electron is using machine learning to help people find jobsThe platform is using artificial intelligence to help it find out what people wantThe company says it can work with people from across Australia to create more jobsThere’s a huge demand for the platform, as Melbourne’s booming economy has become increasingly reliant on casual workers.
The company has also been using machine-learning techniques to find out exactly what people would want to do for a wage.
Electron CEO Andrew Kueper says it’s a good way to help the economy thrive.
“There’s lots of other ways to get paid.
For example, if you’re a chef, you might want to work at a restaurant for a while and then go out and cook at home.
And there’s lots more options than just getting a job,” he said.”
We’ve also been doing some of the work with the Government, with the National Council of Trade Unions, with other organisations to make sure we can provide some employment to those who need it, whether it’s in the community or not.”
That’s a way of providing some of these other services.
“Mr Kueber says he has already started to see a trickle of jobs being created, with businesses such as McDonalds using the platform to fill vacancies.
But how does Electron get people to get involved?
Electron currently has about 2,000 paid jobs across the city, including some that are on the ground.
But if Electron could identify more people to start working, that could be the start of a revolution.”
I think it’s great for people who can’t work for whatever reason,” Mr Kuepper said.
But not everyone wants to do the work that’s needed.
In the past two years, Mr Kuesper has also seen a lot of businesses move into retail, with people finding jobs at stores such as Kmart and Sainsbury’s.
He says it will be important to get people on board with Electron before it is fully operational.”
For us to be able to work with those businesses and see how they’re going to benefit from this, that will be key,” he explained.”
The biggest challenge right now is that there’s a big gap between what people are paying for the job that they’re doing and what the job is actually worth.
“Electron has a strong history in the regionThe company started out as a company called the New Zealand Electronic Execution Platform, which was set up in New Zealand in 2008 to sell their services in the city.
The idea for Electron came from a conversation between Mr Kueder and his father, who was in the medical field, and was interested in the technology.”
My father had been looking for a way to find work as a pharmacist and had looked into the technology,” Mr Cottle said.
Electrons main client was a pharmaceutical company, who were using the technology to fill positions for their patients.
Electronics and manufacturing industries are increasingly dependent on casual labour to keep the economy running.
Mr Kuesber says that the Electrons service has helped to create a lot more jobs, and is one example of what can be achieved by using technology.
