Werkules – The Tool for Gig Workers Everywhere

For better or for worse, the gig economy is transforming the workplace and displacing traditional work structures. Independent contractors, on-call workers and temporary workers all depend on acquiring short term work assignments, and the number of people in that work force is predicted to grow. In a recent article, 40 Gig Economy Statistics You Must Learn: 2021 Market Share & Data Analysis – Financesonline.com  it was noted that:

  • Almost 68 million works in the U.S. work freelance (Statista, 2021)
  • By 2028, the population of U.S.-based freelance workers is projected to reach 90.1 million (Statista, 2021)
  • 78% of gig workers plan to do the same gig work or more in the next year. (DaVinci Payments, 2021)
  • More than 50% of gig workers are Gen Zers and millennials who have an annual household income of $50,000 or less. (Statista Research Department, 2021)

As the gig marketplace grows and the Baby Boomers retire, the work force population will be dominated with workers quite comfortable with mobile apps. Netwerk sees a big opportunity for a mobile application that can simplify work/life needs for the current and future generations of gig workers. That application is WERKULES ®.
