Have we reached peak gig economy yet?

The London-based company offers a platform targeting millennials who want to pick up shift work in the hospitality and retail sectors.

As well as enabling you to find and book work through the app, Gig s headline feature is that once a shift is completed, workers automatically get paid within 24 hours.

If the so-called gig economy is fueling an array of services that let consumers purchase things on-demand, here Gig is punting employment itself as available on-demand.

Millennials want instant gratification, they want and get it with travel Uber , takeaway Deliveroo and retail Amazon same day delivery , but they are yet to get it with work, says Gig co-founder Antony Woodcock.

It s structured, you work set shifts or set days, which are planned a week or more in advance and you don t get paid until the end of the week or month.
