The size of the office has shrunk so much that now you can put it in your pocket. This newsletter looks at the rise of the gig economy, and all of the ways that traditional work structures are being supplanted by things that are a little more flexible.
Articles include pieces on the causes and effects of freelancing, as well as the courtroom battles between tech and the workers who want to change the terms and conditions under which they work. Pieces come from a variety of sources, with the gig economy and freelancing affecting countries all over the world. There are a lot of different perspectives, and this newsletter tries to include reports from the viewpoint of the whole gamut of workers, entrepreneurs, and legal experts.
When we started this newsletter in March we also did not know the implications that the pandemic was going to have on the world of work. Articles have taken on a new sense of urgency as leaders try to figure out what the future is going to look like, with the in-depth focus of Deepnews hopefully providing you the information to make sense of it all.
