The rising of gig economy – But is it for you?

(BPT) – Freelancer, passion projects, side hustles are all synonymous with the gig economy — which has grown substantially over the past decade. The economic downturn of 2008 led many employers to recruit gig/temporary workers to control costs. The explosion of rideshare services and other contract employment has increased the awareness of gig as a steady work stream. According to MetLife’s 17th Annual U.S. Employee Benefit Trends Study, almost 30 million Americans receive primary income from gig or part-time work — nearly one-fifth of the total workforce. An additional 15 million supplement “traditional” full-time work with gig work. The study found that 85% of gig workers were interested in continuing their contract work over the next five years, instead of seeking a traditional work role. What does it mean to go ‘gig’?

We are hearing more and less about global warming and less about climate change and going green. Part of the explanation for this is the individuals who write about it.
