The gig economy is not a new concept, but recently it has gained a lot of spotlights, and why shouldn’t? Freelancing has become an effective solution for small companies and contract workers. The International Labour Organization published a ‘high’ global unemployment estimate of 24.7 million because of COVID-19 in mid-March; a week later, it announced that the outcome could be ‘far higher’. In comparison, global unemployment increased by 22 million compared to the 2008–2009 economic crisis. It is also expected that, worldwide, there could be as many as 35 million more in ‘working poverty’ than before the pre-COVID-19 period for 2020.
