The Gig Is Up
From delivering food and driving rideshares to supplementing algorithms with human creativity, millions of people around the world are finding work task-by-task online. The gig economy is worth over $5 trillion USD globally, and growing, yet the stories of the workers behind this tech revolution have gone largely neglected. Who are the people in this shadow workforce? The Gig Is Up brings their stories into the light. Lured by the promise of flexible work hours, independence, and control over time and money, workers from around the world have found a very different reality.
