An increasing number of workers are self-employed, many as gig workers who use an online platform to perform specific services. What does gig work look like in the Bay Area, and who is working in these jobs? What policy ideas (like portable benefits) could improve their working conditions? Join an all-star panel as academics, practitioners and employers discuss the current and future state of this work in the region. Co-presented by the Aspen Institute Future of Work Initiative.
