Gigged: The Gig Economy, the End of the Job and the Future of Work


Between Uber drivers and Airbnb hosts, freelance jobs are becoming an increasingly prominent part of our economy. GIGGED goes inside the Silicon Valley companies leading the way to this emerging `gig economy'. It tells the stories of the workers - from computer programmers to online comment moderators - who are getting by in a new wave of precarious, short-term employment.

And it sketches out what tomorrow's economy might look like: one where the fortunate get to work when they want, how they want, while the rest live lives of extraordinary hardship. It might just be the future of work for all of us.
