We're participating in the webinar The Future of Work: Self-Employed Workers are America's Hidden Growth Engine this Thursday, September 26th from 1:00pm to 1:45pm ET.
The webinar is being produced by MBO Partners, who we work with on the annual MBO Partners State of Independence study and report.
We'll be covering the key data from this year's study including demographics of the self-employed and their population growth, as well as new statistics measuring their impact on the economy and employment - which is substantial.
We found that about 1/4 of independent workers (freelancers, self-employed consultants, etc.) hired other independent workers via contracting and this added up to the full-time equivalent of 2.3 millon workers last year.
We'll discussing this and other data on self-employment in more detail.
