Research by the University of Hertfordshire and Ipsos MORI, in association with FEPS, UNI Europa, Ver.di, and IG Metall has revealed the true size of the German ‘gig economy’. It confirms once more that working in the gig economy has become a reality for many people today.
22% of survey respondents in Germany have tried to find work via online platforms during the past year
4% of respondents said they have managed to find work in this way at least once a week
17% of crowd workers are over 55, compared with 20% who are under 24 years old – the majority represents the 25-35 age group
The study shows an overall attitude shift: crowd workers do not, or cannot, restrict themselves to a single type of work but offer to provide several kinds of service, with an extremely broad range, from high-skill professional work at one extreme, to running errands at the other. The overall picture emerging is showing a new group of workers trying to piece together a livelihood from a range of different tasks.
