South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said, as president, he would allow gig workers to unionize.

"There are people in the gig economy who go through more jobs in a week than my parents went through in their lifetime," Buttigieg said during the debate.

"That's why I propose that we allow gig workers to unionize because a gig is a job and a worker is a worker."

Organizing among some gig-economy workers is already beginning.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old openly gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana with a hard-to-pronounce last name (according to his Twitter profile, it’s pronounced “BOOT-edge-edge”) is running for president of the United States.

“Mayor Pete” has been getting lots of media attention and his campaign is raising significant money.

Even a few months ago, Buttigieg was virtually unknown outside of Indiana, and most people assumed that a small-town mayor would be a long shot candidate, but he’s quickly rising to the top tier of contenders for the Democratic nomination for president.

Here are a few marketing lessons that business owners can learn from the ways that Mayor Pete Buttigieg has so successfully introduced himself to the political world and is breaking out from a highly competitive, crowded, saturated market:

Mayor Pete is an unconventional choice for president in a few ways: he’s 37 years old, he’s never held statewide office (South Bend isn't even the biggest city in Indiana) and he’s openly gay.

Buttigieg is nominated to lead the Department of Transportation.

Biden praised the Cabinet he has assembled so far as one that is “historic” and composed of nominees who would break barriers with their confirmations, including Buttigieg, who is poised to be the first openly gay Senate-approved member of the Cabinet.

He also admired Buttigieg as a new voice with new ideas, determined to move past old politics.

President-elect said, “The department of transportation services a critical mission with critical responsibilities, particularly in this administration.

We need someone who knows how to work with state, federal, and local agencies”.

The former mayor of Indiana, Buttigieg skyrocketed to prominence during the Democratic presidential primaries.Point to be noted that he is the youngest member in a vast field of candidates.

But a lively mix of candidates -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders, author Marianne Williamson, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Gov.

Steve Bullock, Rep. John Delaney, former Gov.

John Hickenlooper, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke and Rep. Tim Ryan -- found other ways to make themselves heard.

It's expected the candidate field will soon be whittled down, so some of the 20 featured over two evenings this week may not appear again.

New Age author Marianne Williamson might not become president, but Twitter users had a long list of other Cabinet positions that might be a good fit.

This is an excerpt from a story delivered exclusively to Business Insider Intelligence Connectivity & Tech subscribers.

In an effort to build support with rural constituencies, US presidential hopefuls and world leaders alike are proposing increased government funding to improve internet access in remote areas.

Here are what current and would-be leaders are proposing:

Candidates in the US Democratic primary have put forward a number of plans to help bring broadband service to rural areas.

Earlier this week, Mayor Pete Buttigieg called for $80 billion in funding for broadband initiatives.

The plan echoes similar proposals from Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, pegged at $85 billion and $50 billion respectively.

Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is big tech's latest critic.

His new economic plan, called "A New Rising Tide," seeks to implement gig worker rights and gender pay transparency, according to a blog post published Friday.

Buttigieg said he'll support the "ABC test" to make sure workers aren't denied minimum wage and their chance to unionize.

The ABC test determines that a worker is "free from employer's control," is "performing work outside of the employer's usual course of business" and works as an "independent business in the industry."

Among other initiatives, the former mayor said he wants to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act -- currently awaiting the Senate's approval -- which would ban an employer from using an employee's past salary history to determine pay.

His policy comes at a time when other Democratic presidential candidates have rebuked big tech companies.

During his CNN town hall event last night in New Hampshire, 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg said that, if elected president, he would work to empower the Federal Trade Commission so that it could better tackle tech monopolies.

Buttigieg has previously critiqued what he perceives to be concentrations of wealth across industries, including tech.

On Monday night, he discussed at length the extent to which he believes current antitrust standards fail when challenged by free services like Facebook and Google.

“It’s not designed to handle some of these tech companies where there’s actually no price at all.

We’ve learned in part because of the way our data are used by these companies that nothing is actually free.”

Buttigieg was elected mayor of South Bend, Indiana, in 2011 winning a large majority of the vote.
