When selecting or working with a gig platform or marketplace, whether buying or selling gigs, you need to understand: what is the total cost? You should always try to compare the total cost of a gig platform so you know what you’re dealing with. Often the higher percentage the gig provider takes or charges, the more confusing or complicated they make it in presenting those costs; so if it’s hard to understand the total cost on a platform, that means they are often very high and don’t want to openly disclose the costs.

First you need to understand gig platforms are a different category from freelance jobs. The whole concept, structure and solutions are uniquely different. So today we are only reviewing gig platforms.
The first thing you need to review and measure is the total cost of a gig platform. When you look at the total costs of the leading gig platforms today, it definitely has a price-shocking feel to it. For example the leading platform charges sellers 20%, then often adds on 5% more to the buyers, and then possibly an additional 2-3% for service fees. The total costs come in as high as 27-28%! That leaves only 73 cents of every dollar for the gig provider doing the actual work. That is just gut-wrenchingly high.

Progressive liberal influences are affecting Orthodox Muslims, Christians, Hindus and Jews throughout the world. In the news is an article regarding the Catholic church Pope Benedict warns against relaxing priestly- celibacy rules. Pope Benedict resigned from his position and Pope Francis is his successor. Many people guess the reason for his resignation which was very unusual for a Pope to resign. He may have seen that in the future there would be pressure on the Catholic Church to institute reforms and he was not willing to make these changes. One of the changes is being talked about by Pope Francis regarding priestly celibacy rules under the pressures of his opponents that have pressured the church on the issue of immunity of Priests to sexual abuse accusations. Pope Francis has opened the Catholic Church to gays, and has endorsed interfaith dialogue.

The biggest ways the freelance gig economy benefits businesses:
What is a Freelance Business Gig? Workers are the most flexible option for gig employers. They can often level the playing field with larger more well established competition, by providing access to very large, talented, diverse, and highly skilled resources from around the world, at affordable prices.

There are also companies and industries that will possibly face significant disadvantages for decades.
