Freelance Nation

"No Shifts, No Boss, No Limits" reads a giant billboard in one of the main transportation hubs of NYC. From adjunct professors to taxi drivers many people are finding themselves outside of the traditional employment model with no benefits and very little job security. This transformation is further exasperated by technological developments and the rise of the burgeoning "gig economy". Advocates of this new economic model argue that it offers greater worker autonomy and that consumers love the convenience and low prices. However, as several Uber drivers have come to find out, these conveniences come at a cost. The film explores the other side of the popular "sharing economies" from the perspective of workers. It follows several Uber drivers in their efforts to organize and restore the basic workers rights that are currently being eroded under the guise of freedom and opportunity.
