Virtually all net job growth in the US during 2005-2015 comes from alternative employment. This from a new paper by Lawrence Katz and Alan Krueger.
Alternative work are all forms of non-standard employment, on demand work and the gig economy. A sign of how the labor market is shifting.
Studies by the OECD point to non-standard work accounting for 60 percent of all new jobs from 1990-2013 and 50 percent if the years of the financial crisis are excluded. In OECD as a whole, about 1/3 of all employment is non-standard.
