ABSTRACT. Employing recent research results covering the relationship between contingent work arrangements, job precariousness, and marginal social identities, and building my argument by drawing on data collected from Business Insider Intelligence, Edelman Intelligence, SAP SE, Upwork, and YouGov Omnibus, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding proportion of satisfied with work-related benefits by type of gig economy activity (%), most commonly used platforms by UK gig economy workers (%), type of gig economy work by total annual income from all sources (UK, %), how often individuals engage in freelancing (%), the split of organizational spend across employees, non-payroll workers, and service providers (%), and level of satisfaction by importance of gig economy income (%). Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the collected data.
