More than a quarter of all workers in the United States are engaged in the gig economy and by 2020 that number is expected to jump to 43%. According to the Gig Economy Data Hub, about 1 in 10 people rely on the gig economy for their primary income, while the remainder turn to the gig economy to supplement their main income.
