  • Companies provide temporary positions to workers and the latter reaches independent, short-term contracts with them. The trend is very strong in advanced economies like the US where there is large volume of cases where firms engages in short term contracts with workers. Even the terms – employer/employees cannot be used here as it indicates a rather long-term identity.

What promotes gig economy?
