The Gig Economy is huge now. A 2018 report from Gallup Poll found that 36% of all U.S. workers participated in the Gig Economy in some capacity. That’s about 57 million people! One interesting finding in the report is that baby boomers participate in the Gig Economy at higher rates that GenXers and Millennials.
It looks like the boomers are turning to the Gig Economy to help facilitate a smoother retirement. I think that is a great idea. A gig can bring in some income and you get a chance to socialize. Why not?
