The Gig Economy (Current Controversies) (Paperback)
For many, the gig economy is part of everyday life. It affects how our food and groceries are delivered, our transportation options, and where we stay when we travel. But while apps like Uber tend to receive the most attention, this shift in the labor market manifests in many different ways. Essentially, it applies to anyone who forgoes traditional full-time employment for temporary or contract-based work. Your readers will experience a wide range of viewpoints that consider how the gig economy has developed, its advantages and disadvantages for both workers and consumers, and whether regulation could help ensure its growth is beneficial to all involved.
