As the gig economy booms, more workers fear lack of predictable income

on demand challenges

From The Next Web (TNW) News, Lauren Hockenson discusses a recent survey by Intuit of workers who find work through on-demand platforms and freelancer management systems (FMSs).  Lauren writes:

Responses showed that most on-demand workers spend more than 40 hours per week working, with 12 hours devoted to their “primary on-demand job.” The average worker relies on three different streams of income to make ends meet, with a third of workers listing on-demand work as their top source of income.

Why do workers choose on-demand? Money is the simple answer: 65 percent of workers say they do on-demand as supplemental income. 46 percent say they like the flexibility and control of the schedule.

Lauren reports that the top challenges for on-demand workers are “getting enough work” and “unpredictable income.”
