Freelance economy is on the rise

Workforce in Finland (excluding agriculture, forestry and fishing industries, stat.fi)

In Finland, the number of freelancers has risen over 40% from 2000 until 2014. In the US, freelancers make up roughly 7% of the workforce, and by 2020 it’s expected to be nearly 16%. Is this a road to precarity?

  1. “WeWork, for instance, is one of the most popular providers of workspace for independent contractors, and it’s expanding to major cities around the world. The company has raised the bar in part by focusing on creating a collaborative ambience you’d find at any cutting-edge startup. WeWork spaces even boast arcades, fresh fruit, and beer on tap.”
