I don’t know about you, but the nerd in me occasionally likes to play the “how far can it go” game with the gig economy. In other words, I oftentimes find myself thinking, “can the gig workforce fit in that industry or that kind of job?” And when I ask that question, I frequently find myself saying, “nah, surely not there.”
When it rains, it pours. If you think back roughly nine years ago, at the crippling height of the economic downturn, employers were laying off workers en masse across all industries. Fast forward to 2017, and they can’t get enough of them. The concern has clearly shifted from no jobs to no workers.
