GigBOP at a Glance
What do you mean by Gig Workers?
Gig workers are temporary, with flexible hours or freelance based workers. They are very popular due to the flexibility of online businesses. Gig work is increasingly popular as a side job, or a side hustle for people with more traditional full-time jobs to create an additional source of income. According to Upwork’s seventh annual Freelance Forward study, 59 million Americans worked as freelance workers in the past 12 months, representing 36% of the overall U.S. workforce. Examples of gig workers include contractors, online jewelry sellers, freelancers, business services and project-based workers.
