CNBC posted some interesting information about the economics of crowdsourcing.
- In the past 20 years, gig work has increased at a much faster rate than traditional full time work
- 81% of the growth comes from the 25 largest metro areas
- “Rides and rooms” fuel the growth
- The growth produces societal issues, particularly regarding health care: workers will rely more on health exchanges
Good to have some real numbers for all this!
