The millennial mindset: The gig economy
CBS Boston - 06/07/2016
Alicia Modestino, a professor at Northeastern University’s School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, explains it’s all about the gig economy now.
“So, the gig economy, we can think of the Ubers or the Taskrabbits out there, where folks are using all these great new technologies and apps to connect to each other, to be able to have this peer to peer labor market,” she said. “It’s definitely changed the nature of employment in the contract between employers and workers. It’s not quite clear how it’s going to play out in the long term.”
