The platform work economy comes with great strengths. The ability to work where you want and how you want is a significant motivator for people who have grown tired of the 9-5 rigidity and seek more diversity in their career path.
Having the option to work from home, whether full-time or a few days a week, is invaluable to those who work in industries where it’s viable such as web-based Upwork for freelance writers and graphic designers in the main. Alternatively, location-based work like Uber or Wolt attracts those who seek greater mobility to widen their career options.
