Through this report, we identify the benefits and challenges of working in the gig economy, which occupations and sectors are best supported by gig workers, and how gig work can be a successful and a long-term career path. Different occupations will be identified as strong gig positions, with interviews conducted from local gig workers to learn about their career experience. Strategies for success as a gig worker will be developed, as well as recommendations for how the local business community can better incorporate and support gig workers based on worker and community partner consultations.
