New data suggests millennials looking to be their own boss should think strategically about the gig economy.
These industries are expected to have many new jobs for self-employed workers, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were about 9.6 million self-employed workers in 2016. This number is expected to increase to 10.3 million by 2026. That’s a 7.9 percent growth rate, which is slightly faster than the rate projected for all workers.
Some gig economy jobs are growing faster than others, however.
