In my report, How Big is the “Gig” Economy? What about “Permatemps”? I accidentally put commas in the wrong place when reporting the estimated increase in “gig” employment.
With commas in the correct place, the estimated increase in gig employment between 2010 and 2015 is 10,058,540 not 1,005,854 as originally shown.
The BLS shows employment rose 10,628,000 in the same period.
Thus, nearly the entire increase in employment (94.6%) since 2010 has been in the gig economy!
