As a product of technology, the gig economy has helped create a buyer’s market for both job seekers and companies that utilize the services of independent workers. 

To clarify, the gig economy is not just jobs created through on-demand platforms like Uber, Amazon Flex and Postmates — although it includes those too. In fact, the gig economy ecompasses any kind of independent work like freelance writers, designers and other self-employed contractors.
