May 28 - "Like it or Not, the Gig Economy is Growing" - Gil Hanson and Humanist Discussion Group
Companies are increasingly cutting costs by increasing efficiency and reducing workforce. As a result, many now-unemployable, mid-career workers are joining the growing Gig economy. The Gig economy includes free-lancers, self-employed, contract help, temporary help, etc. Presently, 32 million Americans rely on the Gig economy as their primary source of income. 22 million of these Americans choose to be in the Gig economy. Many of the 10 million who prefer not to be in the Gig economy lack the marketable skills or marketing know-how needed to generate an income that meets a minimum standard of living. They need help.
