The Orwellian Nightmare Of Being A Truck Driver | Karen Levy | TMR

Long-haul Truckers are crucial to the American economy and value their independence, but are facing increased digital surveillance through mandatory digital monitors. These devices track their location and behaviours, leading to new forms of managerial and legal control. Karen Levy’s book Data Driven: Truckers, Technology, and the New Workplace Surveillance offers insight into this changing industry and raises questions about technology’s impact on work and privacy. The book highlights the challenges and resistance faced by truckers in this new reality. It contributes to discussions about protecting public interests and human dignity in the digital age.
