Up & Go is an app that allows you to order house-cleaning services in New York City. The cleaners, many of them Latin American immigrants, formed worker-run cooperatives long before they ever started thinking about an app. Up & Go was able to create their own digital interface to book clients and also own their own code therefore removing Silicon Valley “distruptors” from skimming profits off the top.
