Claim your share of the gig economy with Stock Rewards§
Gig work offers you unmatched freedom to juggle and jump between gigs to create a work schedule that suits your life.
While there are aspects of the gig economy that’s broken, such as unlivable wages and a lack of benefits, there's a solution that empowers you without compromising your independence.
The pitfall of W2 employment
Some people argue for making gig workers employees. But, being an employee takes away the independence of gig work.
As a gig worker, you’re the boss. You get to decide which companies to work with, when to work, and how to run your business.
Empowerment through ownership
History has shown us there is another way to make a change that doesn’t involve giving up your independence.
That’s why you should consider being a shareholder in the companies you work with.
Ownership translates to influence—shareholders gain the right to vote, speak, and impact company operations. The larger your stake, the more significant the changes you can drive.
Unite for change
When a large group of people rally together to own stock in a company, they can effectively short the system. They become partial owners who can force fundamental changes in the company they own stock in.
