I have been a gig worker in various capacities since I was 15. I’ve written on a freelance basis, delivered food around the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and once even hauled a few hundred boxes for a family in the midst of a move.
The flexibility of being a gig worker is unparalleled, and for someone in need of spending money while attending college, it has been perfect.
Now, however, President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats have opportunities like mine in their sights. Progressive politicians and activists are pushing the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, which could potentially end the gig economy forever.
