Policy Study

02/12/2016

In this report Ursula Huws, Neil H. Spencer and Simon Joyce firstly investigate how crowd workers use online platforms in order to generate an income and secondly, identify their characteristics. The analysis shows that the gig economy is on the rise in the aforementioned five Member States, offering new employment structures and different types of work to various age groups. FEPS and UNI Europa as well as the respective co-funders published the results of each crowd working survey at press events and on their websites. The research project has attracted high media attention at the national level and the interest of several EU officials and academics across Europe, underlying the relevance and the innovative character of this project.
