"Temporary workers and independent contractors make up nearly a third of the U.S. workforce, and represent a growing asset to companies who rely on freelance flexibility. But corporations are using the designation "freelancer" to avoid paying health care and other benefits, even though many of these workers put in the same hours as their covered counterparts. NOW looks as the effect of this tactic on the lives and personal economy of freelance workers, and one group's efforts to provide a safety net for over 60,000 workers."--Container.
