Synopsis: By 2030, the full-time job may no longer exist.Over the last five years, digital technology has created a revolutionary new world of work - one that might just make traditional professions obsolete. Using apps like Uber and Deliveroo, a generation of freelancers are building their routines around dozens of odd-jobs sourced online- from driving taxis to cleaning houses, building software to consulting for investment banks. Welcome to the gig economy.In Gigged, Sarah Kessler meets the people who are forging this new world of short-term, irregular employment. It's the story of the Silicon Valley entrepreneurs designing apps that let you pick a new profession every day; of the single mums using the internet to choose exactly which hours they work each week; of the cab drivers being made redundant by the inexorable rise of Uber. Along the way, Kessler asks probing questions about how the gig economy could change employment for all of us. Might freelance 'gigs' empower us all to work when we want, how we want? Or will they hand power to unscrupulous bosses, determined to deprive us of job security, holidays, and benefits?Our idea of work is transforming at its most rapid rate in centuries. Gigged is a timely account of a world of employment that is vanishing - and of the new gig economy that is taking its place.
