Breaking Down the Freelance Economy
The American workforce is now 34% freelancer, according to a new study commissioned by the Freelancers Union and the recently-merged Elance-oDesk. Well, sort of: 14.3 million of the 53 million freelancers counted in the survey are “moonlighters” (people with full-time jobs doing independent work in their spare time). Another 5.5 million are temp workers. Here’s the full breakdown: In any case, it’s a lot of people. But what’s hard to say whether it’s more or less than there used to be.
