One of the major disruptors is the so-called gig economy. As with any transformational activity, though, all that glitters is not gold and some will benefit while others fall behind.
What is the gig economy? The term borrows from musicians, who play individual “gigs.” That is, they usually, but not always, move from one place to another to perform. This is nothing new, as consultants have been part of the gig economy for decades. However, they were usually employees of consulting firms.
