ABSTRACT. This article reviews recent literature concerning online contingent labor. Using data from JPMorgan Chase Institute, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding reliance on, and active participation in, labor platforms, percent of adults participating in the online platform economy in each month, percent of participants by length of observed platform career, percent of adults participating on platforms by employment status, and year-over-year growth in the percent of adults participating in the online platform economy each month. Empirical and secondary data are used to support the claim that unruly boundaries are driven by a digital platform logic.
