GIG ECONOMY Index™
Q3 2016 EDITION
The PYMNTS.com Gig Economy Index™, a Hyperwallet collaboration, is designed to better understand workers in the gig economy, people who often work in short-term, ad hoc positions — who they are, what services they supply and what percentage of their overall income the gigs represent.
KEY FINDINGS INCLUDE:
- 40 percent of respondents receive 40 percent or more of their income from gig economy jobs.
- 31 percent support themselves through one gig.
- 50 percent would not quit their gig for a full-time job.
