The Gig Economy & How It'll Change the Way We Work

Date TBA


Shaquille O'Neal

Adam Roseman


America’s workforce is embracing the gig economy: 1 in 3 Americans are hustling hours & jobs to make ends meet. Steady CEO Adam Roseman & NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal are eager to discuss today’s gig economy. They will highlight lessons learned from the first wave of the gig economy & explore how corporate/tech worlds will adjust to support gig workers in an everchanging economy. The reality of today’s economy is that most Americans are struggling: Making ends meet requires selling something substantial or borrowing money. This needs to change.

Adam & Shaq will talk about this issue & where there’s great potential to adjust to an expanding 1099 worker landscape, which can include exploring healthcare, retirement support & advancement opportunities
