Comment from TechNet

Technology has enabled a valuable new form of work, “gig” or “on-demand,” that offers individuals the opportunity to work flexibly, earn supplemental income after decades of wage stagnation, build their businesses, and ease the impact of income volatility. Innovative platforms have supported many workers and their families, as well as retail establishments, restaurants, and other small businesses that would otherwise be economically threatened. Individuals are able now, like never before, to build their own businesses and earn money how, when, and where they want. The “gig” or “on-demand” economy also empowers consumers by providing lower prices, higher quality, and more reliable choices for everyday tasks and items. In summation, the future of work holds considerable promise for many Americans, and we look forward to finding innovative public policies that foster, support, strengthen, and ultimately grow the “on-demand” or “gig” economy.
