Who Are the Gig-Economy Workers?

With Professors Matthew Corritore and John-Paul Ferguson


In today’s popular culture, much has been made of gig-work companies that are leveraging the power of technology to transform traditional work and reap tremendous profits. On the other hand, far less is known about gig workers – the people who are driving this economy forward.

To fill this knowledge gap, McGill University’s Matthew Corritore, Assistant Professor of Strategy & Organization and John-Paul Ferguson, Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour will survey gig-economy workers in Montreal and Toronto in the coming months to get a fuller picture of who they are, their social networks, and how they fare on the job.

This research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada through a 2019 SSHRC Insight Development Grant.

This episode is available on all major podcast platforms.
