The gig economy, in the most general sense, refers to temporary, independent, or contracted positions. The scope of jobs included in that definition changes depending on how contracts legally classify workers, where workers find work, and the nature of the job itself in relationship to the hiring organization’s main purpose. The Gig Economy Data Hub documents many different sources for information and research on gig work, and each major survey defines gig work slightly differently, leading to very different results. But, gig workers do share one unifying characteristic: they represent a workplace trend that distances employers from employees, placing more responsibilities, especially for career education and training, on individuals rather than corporations.
