Through a series of on-demand worker focus groups as well as a survey of 1099 workers, Crowded.com has been able to tap into its valuable on-demand worker marketplace for information. As a result, Crowded.com discovered that the majority of workers still prefer to be classified as contractors, craving the freedom and flexibility that being a contractor offers, while resisting the restrictions and limits that being an employee can bring, such as limiting the the number of hours they can work.

According to the Crowded.com survey, given the choice between being classified as 1099 or W2, 80.2% of on-demand workers prefer to be classified as 1099 independent contractors; 11.72% would prefer to be classified as W2 employees; and 8.45% do not understand the difference between W2 and 1099.
