In the past decade, we have seen a surge in the number of independent gig workers across the country and a shift in the dynamics of the workforce. From rideshare and food delivery to online freelancing platforms, the gig economy has opened the doors for millions of individuals as a way to make a living without constraints of the traditional 9-5.
Today, gig workers are the largest workforce in America with an estimated 55 million people. Yet, they are left isolated without the tools to benefit from a collective scale. This is about to change with Moves.
Moves exists to focus on the gig worker. We’ve built a world-class, all-in-one financial app to help gig workers understand their gig income, manage their gig business, and access cash when they need it. And now, we’re taking the next steps to build the Moves Collective to give gig workers what they deserve–ownership in the gig economy by giving them shares* in the gig platforms they work for.
Helping gig workers individually manage their gig business and build their financial health isn’t enough if they’re not given the same support to succeed in the gig economy. Gig workers need more. They need to be given the same support by gig platforms, consumers, and local communities to help them succeed.
Together, we can make the gig economy work for everyone.
