The hierarchy of companies now embracing the Gig Economy

posted by veryfier 26 days ago
tags: veryfier gig economy shopping

When most people think of the Gig Economy, they think of the employee. The stereotype of someone driving an UBER around to make ends meet still permeates. And for good reason. The Gig Economy has forever changed our economy and has given the employee more options when it comes to making money and deciding when he or she wants to work.

However, the Gig Economy also effects management styles and that’s what I want to talk about here. It’s becoming a way to conduct your business hirings, and not just a way to adapt to the current gig economy climate.  The hierarchy of companies is starting to embrace the noncommittal nature of the gig economy, just as the common man has.  And I’m not just talking about UBER and recent startups.

So give me an example you say? Papa John’s is the perfect example of a company’s management team adapting to the times. Papa John’s has found that studies show that more people order pizza’s when it is raining out. But you can’t just hire more permanent delivery

I don’t see a Gig Economy bubble, but…….

WILL THERE BE A BUBBLE?

When I decided to write my next article on whether the Gig Economy’s bubble was about to burst, I was sure I’d find articles in the affirmative. And sure enough, I did. And yet, it hasn’t. There’s articles from 2015, 2016, and earlier this year alerting us to the fact that Gig Economy bubble is about to burst, but it hasn’t. And I don’t think it will!

The reason that people keep assuming the bubble will burst is that it’s something they haven’t seen. Surely, something we have never experienced before can’t last forever. And that’s the prevailing logic. The problem with that thinking is they don’t realize that the gig economy is actually the one that is here to stay. Old school 9-5’s? Now those might be the ones whose bubble is likely to burst.

We are increasingly living in a world in which people want things on demand. Movies, food, tasks done, I could go on and on. That, in and of itself, is enough reason to believe that the Gig Economy will continue to flou

Injunction against unionizing Uber

posted by veryfier 26 days ago
tags: veryfier gig economy shopping

Earlier this month, a federal judge in Seattle temporarily blocked the country’s first attempt at trying to unionize the independent contractors of Uber and Lyft. Seattle had a law that passed in 2015, saying that independent contractors like Uber of Lyft drivers had the right to collectively bargain their rights, hours, benefits, and the like.

Before we discuss the potential pro’s and con’s of the decision, let’s look at the decision itself to begin. The judge who rendered the decision, Robert Lansik, didn’t say that this injunctions like these were how he believed most would end up.

He actually sounded quite sympathetic to the drivers and instead said that it’s a complicated issue and he’d like to pause before going forward. So while this appears to be a victory for Uber and Lyft, the judge hardly sounded enthusiastic to their position. He was quoted as saying, “The public will be well-served by maintaining the status quo while the issues are given careful judicial consideration.”

Nine alternatives to Uber

posted by veryfier 26 days ago
tags: veryfier gig economy shopping

The gig economy is more than just Uber! Now repeat it. The Gig economy is more than just Uber! Good, that feels better doesn’t it. I know it does for me. Way too often, when I describe the Gig economy, I revert to using Uber as the prime example. And while it may be the biggest and most well known, there are so many new and evolving Gig economy companies in which you can make money.

To prove my point, I’m going to outline some of the lesser known apps and websites that you can use to add to your income. If you are looking for an independent contracting job, or a side hustle as the cool kids call it, this article may just open some doors for you.

Me, as a case study

posted by veryfier 1 month ago
tags: veryfier gig economy shopping

Since I’ve started blogging for Veryfier, I’ve spoken in general terms about the gig economy; where it’s headed, has it peaked, can people survive on it, etc, etc.  Today, I’m going to take a more personal view since I have been using the gig economy to make money for over two years now.  My previous life as a professional poker player is a post for a different time…..and probably a different site.

So, back to me.  I’ve decided to dedicate my life to being a writer.  However, like someone who wants to be an actor or actress, it’s not like people are always banging down your door, offering to give you work.  Because of that, I’ve had to take many different jobs over the two years.  Some I liked, some I didn’t like.  Truth be told, the bosses at Veryfier have been the very best, allowing me to employ my craft without any intrusion.

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

– Mark Twain via Benjamin Disraeli.

That may be true in politics or when you are trying to form someone’s opinion, but here we are just laying out some of the statistics that prove the Gig economy is here to stay.  Some of these were truly startling.

A Quick Guide to Safely Buying Cars Online

posted by veryfier 1 month ago
tags: veryfier gig economy shopping

We’re all becoming more comfortable shopping online, but the really big purchases can still be a little scary.

We trust Amazon and eBay for books, movies, and household items, but what about the stuff that’s well into the thousands?

In this guide, I’m specifically going to cover one of the most common and most expensive purchases: vehicles.

Buying a Car Online

You need a new or used car. But you live in a big city, and the prices are inflated everywhere you look.

Or maybe, you need a good used car, but you only have three dealerships in your town, and a Craigslist page is nonexistent.
