Work in the Time of Corona

While platforms market gig work as an opportunity for entrepreneurship and as a fall-back option during periods of unemployment, the current coronavirus pandemic -- and the importance of social distancing -- suggests that gig employment might not be a solution during times of national crisis. This mixed methods research project will utilize in-depth interviews and demographic surveys (conducted remotely) with up to 100 gig workers in NYC affiliated to examine how workers are experiencing the virus and how it is impacting their lives and livelihoods.
