The word “gig” originated from the 1920s jazz scene in which jazz musicians used slang and referred to performances as gigs. Today, the term “gig” is associated with a free market system in which individuals or businesses hire independent contractors, freelancers and short-term workers for specialized tasks, assignments or jobs. In the “gig economy” or “freelance economy,” workers earn all or part of their incomes from short-term contracts under which they are paid for individual tasks and assignments.
In many ways, the gig economy facilitates the desire of generations of workers for greater flexibility in work-life demands. No matter what motivates gig workers, the desire to work remote has caused the gig economy to grow significantly. The advantages of gig work are many and the tax, accounting and legal profession are now greatly benefiting from the trend. Benefits include flexibility to work from any location and at any time of the day; unlimited independence to work around what is important in their personal lives; and a wide variety of work to keeps them technically growing and energized.
