The gig economy is here to stay. Intuit estimates that by 2020, as many as 40 percent of Americans will be contingent, or “gig” workers. Gig workers can be freelancers, independent contractors, or any other outsourced employees who are hired on a per-project basis.
Some of these contingent workers choose to work outside of a payroll system either as full-time freelancers or as part-time workers who supplement their income by picking up gigs. Others take contingent jobs out of necessity even though they would prefer full-time employee status.
