Gig Economy Impact On SF

With public attention continuing to focus on the on-demand “gig” economy, District 2 Supervisor Mark Farrell has called for the city’s chief economist to produce an economic report on the gig economy and its workforce in San Francisco. Specifically, he wants the economist to nail down data on the size and scope of the gig economy here; its number of employees; their compensation, benefits, and classifications; and other details.

“With the rise of the gig economy and workforce, we should be having discussions about whether our 20th-century work standards and definitions work in a 21st-century economy,” Farrell said. He said that once legislators are armed with data, they could come up with appropriate policies and regulations.
