Women in the gig economy: We want to hear from you
Share Now on:
A growing number of Americans are getting money from driving for car services like Uber or Lyft, working one-off jobs, delivering goods, selling products on websites like Etsy or eBay, renting space in their homes on websites like AirBnb or working as a freelance writer, designer or musician.
Today, almost a quarter of Americans earn money in the gig economy. Yet it’s a group that’s majority male, according to the latest Marketplace-Edison Research Poll.
Let’s find out why.
