Workers need to have a platform to protect their rights and recognize their interests. Workers realise the importance of a "Worker's Bill of Rights" when brought to their attention by an external source. Workers lack the technical skill to develop a mutual aid platform on their own. They cannot help themseleves in this respect.
Workers need to have methods to evaluate employers and comfortably exert their free speech. Workers are divided in how they evaluate employers and the privacy they wish to enjoy. Cultural and demographic diversity of workers pose different requirements and expectations.
Workers need to be respected and their work valued more. Workers have no legal recourse against employers who reject their work, and then use it. Thus they do not enjoy intellectual property rights over their own work.
Workers need to get Job suggestions according to their skills or previous HIT's. Finding work on AMT is tough,Veteran Turkers like SpamGirl and Manish use various tools/scripts to find work.
As David discussed in the morning panel for first-time Turkers

it almost impossible to find work.

The non-user-friendly interface is an obstruction in itself when one starts turking,
and one needs to have various tools to make reasonable money .
Workers should be given certain rights and they should be guarded. "iambob" on Turker Nation was unjustly blocked by a Requester. This is about what the workers deserve.
