Freelancers are a growing segment of the workforce. The winds of technological change sweeping across the economy have impacted pretty much every industry and re-shaped the way workers deliver their labour. This has often been a boon for the worker delivering move flexibility, automony and work-life balance. The cost has often been the loss of those things that the ‘firm’ provided as part of employment – an office, superannuation, leave benefits and insurance.
Freeflow is proposed as a platform coop to help meet these needs.
