Why Hasn't The Gig Economy Killed Traditional Work?

An anonymous reader quotes NPR: In recent months, a slew of studies has debunked predictions that we're witnessing the dawn of a new "gig economy." The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that there was actually a decline in the categories of jobs associated with the gig economy between 2005 and 2017. Larry Katz and the late Alan Krueger then revised their influential study that had originally found gig work was exploding. Instead, they found it had only grown modestly. Other economists...

Conservative lawyers steal page from progressive playbook

For liberals, legislative defeats are just a temporary setback until the real battle begins in court.

Rent costs in Los Angeles, Orange counties rising at fastest pace in 11 years

Tenants in Los Angeles and Orange counties were hit with the fastest rate of rent inflation in 11 years in February, according to the local Consumer Price Index.

Apple CEO Tim Cook explains why you don't need a college degree to be successful (AAPL)

Apple CEO Tim Cook says there's a "mismatch" between the skills learned in college and the skills that businesses need, especially when it comes to coding.
