Growth in the gig economy

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!
