As excerpted from Sacramento Bee
Our economy is changing. We call it different things: the sharing economy, the gig economy, the new economy. But, it's clear that we are entering a new era of work and our old paradigms of labor laws that neatly addressed employee-employer relationships might not necessarily fit with what we're seeing.
We often think of Uber or Lyft when we think of this new economy, but this sector is exploding and now there are apps for nearly any job, like TaskRabbit or Handy. You can hire a maid, a plumber, even a lawyer, with a touch.
