Lib Dems in Business Event: Measuring the Gig Economy - How Will It Contribute to UK Business Success?
Acting as a keynote speaker alongside Vince Cable to discuss the rise of the gig economy and how policy makers and businesses can be more freelancer friendly.
Characterised by short-term contracts the gig-economy has provided some workers a great opportunity, but for others it means zero-hours contracts, insecure work, and no protection. I talked about why the shift to freelance is a feminist issue, why gig economy work is inherently appealing to young people, and the difference between being a gig economy worker out of necessity versus choice.
