What is the GIG Economy?

What is the GIG Economy ?

What is the Gig Economy anyway?

A quick search on Google defines the gig economy as “a labor market characterized by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work as opposed to permanent jobs.” This hip sector of the economy is filled with buzzworthy companies like Uber, Lyft, Airbnb and Instacart. Members of the gig economy aren’t in traditional full-time jobs, they’re contractors, freelancers, consultants, and now flexible employees.

Why is it so popular?

With unrivalled flexibility and digital technology that allows workers to work anytime and anywhere, it’s easy to understand the appeal of the gig economy. This flexibility makes it easier for workers to adopt a second, part-time job more than ever before. A survey from CareerBuilder found that 29 percent of workers have a side hustle.

What makes Nowtaskr a part of the gig economy?
