Uber Economy Fears
john_j_enright
Just recently you hear people complaining that everyone is being forced to work on a free lance basis, as if everyone will soon be an Uber driver, but the numbers apparently don't bear out this new worry:

'In the future, new technology and businesses may herald a different world for workers. But for now, the "gig economy" and a "nation of freelancers" remains a phenomenon on the margins of the labor market.'

The labor force of gig
really isn't that big.

It was not that long ago that working on a free-lance basis was considered being an adult. Only youngsters worked at jobs. (In theory.)

It's true. And this study excluded people who are the sole employee of a self owned corporation, who are more like free lancers, just operating under somewhat different legal ownership arrangements.
