The freelance economy: iPros rally, but are they getting a fair deal?

As Australia's manufacturers shut up shop, more and more workers will be going freelance. Henry Belot -- himself a freelance writer -- looks at what it will mean when we give the boss the flick.

News that Holden will close operations in Australia from 2017 is just the latest sign of a dramatic transformation in Australia’s labour market. With 40% of US workers predicted to be freelancers by 2020 and a 45% increase in the number of freelancers working in the European Union since 2004, many more Australians may be forced to re-conceptualise job security and join the swelling ranks of freelancers.
