The world truly might not remain the same after the Coronavirus hit. One thing that will emerge is the importance of Gig workers and the concept of work from home. These are independent, freelancers, who work on a project to project basis using technology they are mobile and can work from anywhere, including home. We have seen how due to nationwide lockdowns, companies are using innovative partnerships to deliver aid, goods, and services, essentials to people locked up in their homes. Most companies have asked employees to work from home using apps and technology to do their work.
Companies are using gig workers to double up as delivery men, drivers, and health workers to reach out to affected areas. These migrant workers will become a more important part of the urban workforce and will come closer to the main steam in-terms of pay and benefits at the same time enjoying the freedom of work and who to work for.
