At the JCC: Learn About Labor Rights in the Gig Economy


Business leaders predict that by 2020, more than 40 percent of the U.S. workforce will be self-employed. What challenges do freelancers face in terms of earning potential, benefits, job security, and other labor market issues? How are economists, activists, and policy makers responding to this growing trend?

In honor of May Day, traditionally a holiday for workers, we will hear from an expert panel featuring journalist Sarah Kessler, author of the forthcoming book Gigged: The End of the Job and the Future of Work organizer and scholar Ed Ott, former Executive Director of the NYC Central Labor Council.

Cosponsored by The Workmen’s Circle
Thursday, May 3, 7-9 pm
