ABSTRACT. I inspect the relevant literature on non-standard work arrangements in digital labor markets, providing both quantitative evidence on trends and numerous in-depth empirical examples. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from Atlas, BloombergView, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Edelman Intelligence, JPMorgan Chase Institute, MBO Partners, RSA/Ipsos MORI, Statista, Upwork, and YouGov Omnibus, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding what motivates gig workers (%), employees and self-employed working more than 45 hours per week in the UK (%), freelancers who say independent work is more secure than a traditional job (%), year-on-year growth in gig economy monthly earnings (US, %), frequency of involvement by annual income from gig economy (%), where individuals typically go to find freelance work (%), the gig economy as a percentage of civilian employment, and annual personal income of freelancers (US, %). Data collected from 5,200 respondents are tested against the research model by using structural equation modeling.
