Gig economy

The gig economy refers to the trend of people working in temporary or flexible jobs, often through digital platforms or freelance work, as opposed to traditional, full-time employment. It is characterized by an increase in the number of people working in temporary roles that are filled on demand, such as drivers for ride-hailing jobs and delivery jobs, as well as gig workers in other industries. This kind of work frequently lacks the benefits and job security of regular employment, but it typically provides greater leeway and independence for its participants.
