The Gig Economy

“Independent workers can be grouped into two blocks: those who are indie by choice and those who are indie by chance. Those in the “indie-by-choice” category report that they love the work they do and would never take a full-time conventional job. Those in the much larger “indie-by-chance” category would, if given a choice between the instability and complications of a freelance career or a stable full-time job with a pension, benefits, skills training, promotion opportunities, a coffee machine and a fast internet connection, overwhelmingly choose the stable, full-time job.”
