When The Side Hustle Becomes THE Hustle

When The Side Hustle Becomes THE Hustle
Reimagining Work
August 20, 2022

In recent years, we’ve seen an explosion in the number of workers supplementing or replacing traditional 9 to 5 jobs with gig work of some kind. People like Joel Lantigua, whose gig work as a courier helps him maintain a certain work/life balance, and the flexibility to pursue other interests. But as more people flock to these types of jobs, what are the implications for workers and the economy? In this episode, Brian Lowery talks with Justin Wolfers, professor of public policy and economics at the University of Michigan, about the future of task-based work.
