Are We Seeing the Death of the Gig Economy?
Stephen DeWitt, CEO of WorkMarket, discusses the differences between the gig and freelance economy, claiming that freelance work will reign supreme.

We talk about the September jobs report, which saw the first decline in payrolls in 7 years. DeWitt adds that he mostly agrees with analysts - that the decline was a blip due to a difficult hurricane season. However, he notes that it is something that we must keep an eye on. We also speak with DeWitt about the rise of automation and what that means for human jobs, as it grows in popularity.
