31 tips for using gig economy to get ahead your competition

People working as a freelancer is not a new thing. Contractual workers have been around for a long time. They get paid for their output, not by the hours. They get payment for their work, but there's no benefit. This labor model isn't a modern concept, but it is slowly but surely taking over full-time jobs. This is called gig economy.

The emergence of the term gig economy was a response to the burgeoning demand for more freelance workers than regular employees. So while working as a contractor for an employer isn't new, it is now becoming the norm.

For people who wish to be in charge of their own terms and schedule, a part-time job is ideal. Their job's flexible schedule allows them to pursue their other interests or other jobs if they still can. They can pursue their education in the morning while, say, driving for Uber at night. If their job permits it, they can work more hours to earn more as well.

The labor concept isn't perfect, though. It can be at times more detrimental for the workers than for employers. But again, it can also be the best thing to happen to other people. If you think you being in the gig economy if the perfect fit for you, read on to know more about it and how you can benefit from it.
