The Growth of the Gig Economy
Mentor: Dr. Kaija Belfry Munroe
Why has the gig economy grown to become a key component of the American economy? In my report I answered this question through the fields of economic history, economics, social sciences, labour law, and business. I began research on the gig economy because of its modern relevance (40 million Americans are currently engaged with it) and to examine the reasons for its growth and effects on various groups. The findings of this report are based on academic literature and statistics. My presentation aims to explain the gig economy’s growth, effects on various groups, legal challenges, and growth into the future.
