A recent study in the U.S, by Inuit and Emergent Research, revealed that the number of Americans working on-demand jobs will rise twofold in the next five years, from 3.2 million to 7.6 million people.
It’s not just the Millennials working in the on-demand economy, either. Generation X and the Baby Boomers make up 36% and 24% of on-demand workers, respectively. On-demand workers are now also more highly qualified than ever before: 87% have some form of college degree or higher. But in all, unlike those working the full-time and traditional, 40-hour week, a whopping 70% of on-demand workers report to being satisfied with their work arrangements.
