Declaring Independence: The Freelance Revolution

“There’s a new breed of American worker that’s poised to take over the marketplace. … a hybrid entrepreneur, one who controls his or her own schedule, lands clients and maintains an office space. … these entrepreneurs rake in more cash than traditional, in-house employees. … Who is this emerging worker? The Freelancer. …

A recent study conducted by Accenture estimates that between 20 and 33% of the U.S. workforce is made up of freelancers and independent contractors. To put this in perspective, in 1989, independent workers comprised only 6% of the workforce And this trend is showing no signs of slowing down. Another study conducted by Tower Lane and Elance found that over 60% of U.S. companies plan on hiring freelancers in 2014.”
