A new generation of gig economy workers is turning the gig economy into a full-time profession.
It has become a popular option for young adults looking for full-employment jobs and even for those who are struggling with unemployment or underemployment.
Gig workers are finding themselves in a new, lucrative niche.
“It’s been an incredible ride, from the start,” said Rachel Lea, a gig worker from Los Angeles, California, who began working in her job at the age of 18.
“I felt like I was on the path to a better life.”
While most gig workers earn $12-15 per hour and are expected to contribute their own money to their employer, many of them are starting from scratch with little to no experience or experience in a traditional full-service industry.
The gig economy has been gaining momentum in the last two years.
In December, Uber launched its UberX service in New York, a move that will allow gig workers to get around the city by taking a car or bus, and to use it to work from home or travel between locations.
It was a big deal for many gig workers, who have long been a rarity among full- time workers in the United States.
“When Uber started it was a new model that was really, really new to us,” said Michelle Mottram, a full time gig worker in Portland, Oregon, who works at an app called Appetite for Money.
But it has now become an established model for many people in the gig industry.
The growth in gig workers is fueled in part by a growing number of tech companies, which are opening new offices in cities such as Seattle and San Francisco.
There are currently more than 2 million gig workers in America, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Despite the trend of gig workers starting out on a lower income, they are finding it much easier to earn their way into the middle class.
According to data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, a company can earn up to $20,000 per year if it employs 20 to 30 full-timers, up from 10 to 15 in 2015.
While some workers may not be making as much as the tech giants, some have seen their earnings grow.
One gig worker, whose full name is Rebecca and whose job is to maintain social media accounts, said she was earning $60,000 a year by age 25.
Her biggest challenge has been finding a fulltime gig that fits her needs.
She said she is also struggling to find affordable housing in the region.
Lea, who has been a full service gig worker for six years, said her parents have been supportive of her career, but they have struggled to find an affordable place to live with their two small children.
“I’ve been struggling with my health issues, but I think I’ve found my solution, which is finding a place to rent and live, and living in the city, so I can be here for my kids,” Lea said.
Since the start of UberX, Lea has earned $80,000 and is looking to move into a new house and have more flexibility.
She hopes to start her own company by the end of the year.
And some gig workers are starting to see the benefits of their gig economy lifestyle.
A full- service gig at a tech company can cost up to about $200,000.
And while many people are happy with their current job, they may be ready to move to a full on-demand gig to earn some extra money.
Many of the workers interviewed by Reuters for this story said they were looking for work that was better than what they were doing as full- and part-time workers.
More and more companies are opening offices in their hometowns and are offering gig workers more flexibility in their working conditions.
And the boom is starting to have an impact on those working in the U and U.K. cities.
Mottram said that many of her friends are going to the gig city in New Zealand, where her company is located.

I feel like we’re not going to go back to the days of being in a house full of people, but the freedom to be a full person.”

“The gig-economy is starting a new era for many, many people,” he said.
“It’s the biggest shift of any industry in history.
I’m so glad I’m doing it.
It’s the most liberating thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
