By July 31, 2019 No Comments

Perspectives on Mogul News are a curated selection of stories from the world’s leading publishers, giving you more than one side of the story on important issues that face us, and society as a whole.

In this week’s Perspective, we look at the gig economy and its implications. Here’s a short summary of what you can expect to read about in the Mogul News app!

It either offers flexibility and the chance to dictate the pace of your life or it is used to exploit vulnerable workers. Gig work divides opinion. Uber, Deliveroo, Fiverr and more offer people the chance to work when they want but they don’t get the luxuries enjoyed by full-time employees.

From couriers and taxi drivers to editors and producers, you can find someone to do nearly anything with a swipe of your phone.

But does the gig economy actually work? What role does it play in supporting the wider economy? Does it create jobs? Good jobs? In this week’s Perspective, we take a look at different angles of the gig economy and the debate that surrounds it.
