MBO Partners’ State of Independence Report shows Independents are Independent by Choice

MBO’s 2020 State of Independence Report provides key insights into the independent workforce including data that shows independence is the best path for pursuing the American dream. 

  • Independent work becomes the new blueprint for the American dream. ​ There is no question that the carnage in the pandemic labor market forced a large number of people who prefer full-time payroll jobs into independent work. Between 2011 and 2019, the percentage of independent workers saying it was their choice completely rose from 55 to 67 percent. In 2020 this trend was disrupted with 59 percent saying it was completely their choice. One in 11 Americans say they want to go independent, signaling this is the new American dream.
