DESCRIPTION

The size of the office has shrunk so much that now you can put it in your pocket. This Distill looks at the rise of the gig economy, and all of the ways that traditional work structures are being supplanted by newcomers.

Articles include pieces on companies using freelancers and gig workers to make their apps work, the effects of those jobs on the workers, as well as the legal battles between tech and the governments reacting to them.
