A fair price for freedom?
83% of respondents to our survey would rather freelance than take a regular job, even though 59% feel anxiety when they think about their future as freelancers. Even though most freelancers seem to love the lifestyle, they have to face some obstacles that regular employees don't, like:
- Buying their own health insurance
- Paying more taxes than regular employees
- Losing out on the government safety net, which includes unemployment insurance and worker's comp.
