CEE Research Director recently published a co-authored study with Mary Davis
The article, published in the journal Public Health, analyzes the effects of gig economy work on worker health. Their findings show that the piece rate system used in gig economy work, in which the rate of pay might increase or decrease on a job-by-job basis, had significant negative impacts on worker wellbeing. While this pay type is upheld as a means of increasing efficiency, Davis & Hoyt find that the constant demand placed on workers to produce most impacts the health of low-wage, female, and non-white workers.
