Welcome to the Gig Economy

Issue 79  Fall 2016
Welcome to the Gig Economy
Four out of 10 Americans work outside of the traditional 9-to-5, a rate that is growing fast. For workers, this "gig" work can feel both empowering and precarious. This issue looks at how we can bring out the best of the gig economy, but also protect workers. From cooperatives and online communities to "portable" work benefits, we can make the gig economy work for us.
